Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. [not numbered]
Fitzgibbon's pictures complete the display. He has a large variety of life-size portraits. An enlarged photograph of Judge Cady, a good deal bigger than the original, and worked out until the face seems that of a colossus starting from the canvas, surmounts the display. There are also numerous specimens of "phunny types" and "phunny-graphs," which, apart from the humor of the designs, have a forcible and brilliant tinting. [P. 74; see entries 02570025, 02570026, and 02570027 for other works noted in this commentary, and entry 02570001 for related commentary.]
