25 x 30. Milton's "L'Allegro" most characteristically interpreted. It is a "love of a maid," decked in a harvester's hat, holding his pipe near to her mouth, while she laughs at the joke she is evidently guilty of perpetrating. The figure and face are studies. The newly mown clover--the field in the background--the overhanging trees are reproduced with fine spirit. [P. 59.]
