"I have something sweet to tell you," is the language of this delightful little picture, by the first among living female artists. A very pretty young girl, partially in undress, is playing before a mirror with a parrot, showing it its own image. The expression on the girl's face is one of archness and innocence, while the figures and surroundings are very pretty and harmoniously rendered. [P. 191.]
