20 x 24. We have here Mrs. Spencer in her best mood. A mother has her little one of two years in her lap, telling the story of "Little Pig" on its toes. The expression is very happy; the story is read at a glance. The detail is worked in with wondrous ease and beauty. Mrs. Spencer elaborates, but never crowds her canvas. In this fine work all her best characteristics appear. It will challenge remark and elicit general admiration. The Association engraves this for the December "Art Journal." [P. 247; engraving noted in this commentary is not included in the copy of the catalogue indexed.]
