Of the comparatively few remaining examples of genre in Greek sculpture, the two statues named "The Boy with the Goose," and the "Thorn Extractor," are among the finest in execution, and the most pleasing in sentiment. They were executed by artists of the Peloponessus, and belonged to the fourth period of Greek Art. The former is in the Louvre, the latter in the Capital at Rome. [P. 10; exhibited under heading: "Catalogue of Casts." See entry 02800043 for other work noted in this commentary.]
