Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 4
This exquisite painting, from the Dusseldorf School, is one of the gems of modern art, both in execution and composition. It is of a maiden in a shell-boat, around which, in the water and among the lilies, is a whole bevy of fairies, some blowing on shells, some offering the maiden gifts of pearl, some coying with each other--all so exquisitely rendered that it places the picture in our affections for ever. [P. 57.]
