67 x 47. Old Master Piece. No life-size portrait in this country that has ever come to our knowledge, possesses more merit than this remarkably fine work. The "Great Crusader" is represented clad in mail, bearing the standard of the cross. His countenance and attitude betoken the Christian knight. Around his head is the halo betokening the acknowledgement of the Church, for whose zeal he has battled to regain the Holy Sepulchre. The painting is said to have belonged to an altar in a Roman Chapel dedicated to the Saint. [P. 58.]
