Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 13
84 x 60. This is an original of undoubted authenticity, and one of the best pictures ever placed within the reach of patrons of Art in this country. It is the Virgin in the midst of her maids, nine in number. All are busy sewing, embroidering, spinning, &c. The figures are finely grouped, and painted with consummate skill and feeling which go to prove the authenticity of the production. The Association has every reason to congratulate its members in the possession of such a work for their benefit. [P. 56.]
