This picture was designed by Coghetti, and painted in his studio, by his favorite pupil. "Coghetti," writes Mr. Brown from Rome, "is one of, if not the very first Italian painters living. The original was made by him for Mexico, and brought him $5,000. The same he also received for a copy for the Emperor of Russia." Of this last, Agneni, as told Mr. Brown, painted a considerable portion. He afterwards executed this copy. The young Artist has given proof of his superior merit in the two originals of his here exhibited, Nos. 147 and 164, and also in his copies of Paul Potter, Teniers, &c., which were obtained from the Palace Borghese, and which Mr. Brown pronounces some of the best copies he ever saw.
