An enthusiastic flower vender of Paris, on the celebration of the "fete St. Louis." [P. 100.] "Vive St. Louis," by Verheyden, is another cabinet piece. The subject is an enthusiastic flower seller of Paris, who is celebrating the "fete St. Louis;" painted, probably, by a friend of the exiled Bourbons, as in these latter days the "fete Napoleon" is celebrated on the 15th of August, and that of St. Louis is utterly forgotten. The flower vender of the picture is holding up a bouquet of flowers, and his countenance is expressive of delight. The gesture is animated and the coloring is good, but the background is rather peculiar, and seems to offend the eye. [P. 106; see entry 02550044 for related commentary.]
