"The scene is laid near a grange, or the dairy farm; a row of pollard willows, though unfavorable in their shortened forms, produce an admirable effect by their lengthened shadows thrown across the foreground; here a group of cows, delineated and coloured with all the characteristic of truth, evince the superior excellence of the master as a painter of cattle; they are what a pastoral poet would describe, and what few but a Paul Potter could have painted." [P. 5.]
Gallery of Pictures, selected from the most admired productions of the Old Masters, Doggett's Repository, No. 16 Market-Street.
