Cleopatra reading of Marc Anthony's Defeat. Venetian School, (painting)
Guido (copy after)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 18
52 x 38. After Guido. This most magnificent painting will rivet all attention. It is fully equal in its varied merits to the companion piece which we have engraved, viz:--The Queen applying the Asp. Its rare coloring reflecting the lustre of the very Orient itself--the pure flesh color, and commanding expression of the Queen, as she implores the intercessions of the gods to spare her soul's idol, are wonderfully fine. [P. 56; see entry 02410002 for companion piece.]
