This magnificent painting is one of the gems of the Dusseldorf Gallery, and was purchased by Mr. Boker direct from the artist. other parties bid largely for it, but Mr. B. Bore off the prize. It is a morning scene in the mountains of Silesia, with smugglers making their way from the plains of Bohemia, which appear in the background. There is in it the unmistakable hand of the great master, whose "Martyrdom of Huss" is now conceded to be one of the greatest of modern paintings. [P. 58.]
