Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 96
48 x 60. This superb work has everywhere excited enthusiasm. It has been exhibited largely, and has served to enhance the artist's popularity. It is the full life-size figure of a female, who stands in the bay-window tracing with her finger, in the frost upon the pane, the name "William." Her exquisitely expressive face tells the whole story. All is painted with great labor and truthfulness. The draperies are particularly rich. It is hard to conceive anything better calculated to please than this work by one of our most popular artists. [P. 249.]
