"Now on the faltering footsteps of decay youth presses, ever gay and beautiful youth in all its forms." This picture has just left the easel of this celebrated painter, and is the only work he has finished, for a year past, since the death of his daughter. Knaus is without a peer as a painter of genre subjects. In this work, fresh with his best inspirations, he has presented old age and childhood, united in the charm of beauty and simplicity. The tone and color of this picture are wonderfully full and rich. [P. 6.]
