"7 x 9. This picture was painted in 1841. Was sent from Baltimore to the Academy of Design exhibition in New York, and was purchased from that exhibition by Mr. Cozzens. It was the first picture painted by Mr. Woodville ever seen in this city. This artist, who died young, would, if he had lived, have been in the foremost rank; as it is, his works are not surpassed by any of the American school in the best qualities of art in his line. The head in this work is a fine study of character. Woodville's works are scarce." [Price and buyer noted in a contemporary hand.]
