There are few such pictures as this in America. It is so like life it seems as if the beautiful young woman would step from the canvas. The attitude of thoughtfulness, as if young Love's dream were with her--the unsurpassed coloring--the arrangement of drapery--conspire to give this picture an almost inestimable value to the lover of the beautiful in art. In the flesh tint of the bust and arms, it seems as the artist had stolen Nature's self. [P. 58.]
