The original picture is on the ceiling of the Casino, in the Garden of Ruspigliosa Palace, in Rome. It represents the car of the Sun, driven by Apollo, surrounded by the Houris, and preceded by Aurora, who scatters flowers in the morning. The original is from eighteen to twenty feet in length--figures, size of life. "Oh! mark again the coursers of the sun,/ At GUIDO's call, their round of glory run;/ Again the Rosy Hours resume their flight,/ Obscured and lost in floods of golden light." Painted by A. RATTI, ROME. [P. 9.]
