"The scene is a chamber furnished with books and globes, where the painter has retired for relaxation; the fascinations of the pencil are changed for the pleasure of the violin. The expan- sive light from the window displays a mild atmosphere; every thing is in perfect harmony, nor is the most trivial incident without its use; the winding staircase affords a depth of shade, which gives infinite value to the light diffused over the other parts of the picture, while the countenance of the accomplished artist expresses a tranquility of thought in unison with the sentiments of the poet - 'by music, minds an equal temper know,/ nor swell too high, nor sink too low.' Pope." [P. 6.]
Gallery of Pictures, selected from the most admired productions of the Old Masters, Doggett's Repository, No. 16 Market-Street.
