This world-renowned "Diana and her Nymphs surprised by Acteon at their bath" is one of the gems of the Dusseldorf Gallery. It was originally painted for the King of Prussia, and attracted the admiration of connoisseurs on the continent to an exceeding degree. Mr. Boker obtained possession of it only by outbidding all others for the prize. One figure has been chosen from the whole for copy, by a celebrated artist of the Dusseldorf Academy. From Sohn.
