Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 7
22 x 27. This fine work tells its own story. The subject is an historical one. A father has been led out for execution, even up to the last moment the loving daughter hopes for his release. But he is led away from the prison, and the maid, looking out from the cell windows, tells of the progress of the tragedy. The daughter's despair betokens the dying out of the last hope. It was engraved on steel for the March and June "Art Journal." [P. 55.]
