"40 x 55. This picture was painted in 1846, being Mr. Gray's first effort after his return from a second visit to Europe. Mr. Cozzens was so well pleased with it whie in progress that he became the purchaser. Mr. Cozzens was not disappointed in the picture, and he always considered it one if not the best of the examples of this artist. It was the means of introducing Mr. Gray immediately to the public, and the foundation of his reputation." [Price and buyer noted in contemporary hand. In the same hand appears the note: "The cheapest picture sold. It ought to have brought more - double -"]
