Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 133
41 x 30. A very peculiar composition, requiring some stretch of the imagination to fill out its significance. It is the figure of a chubby boy gazing into one of the urns which ornament the roof of the great Cathedral. For background we have the mighty dome, which is Angelo's most immortal monument. The coloring is good, and the picture, as a whole, not unpleasing. We are unable to tell if it is an original or not, the canvas having been cut down several times and relined. [P. 60.]
