"To attempt adding any thing to the well-known history of gaston de foix, would not be easy; and we find no disagreement among the writers of the time about his exalted character; panegyric can scarcely say more, than that the whole of the Milanese was lost by his single death. " How admirably has the painter treated the subject. The incident is familiar; a commander preparing for the field; an attendant assisting to adjust his armour. In the composition nothing outsteps 'the modesty of nature.' In the design there is nothing fantastical or overcharged; no assumed air of conscious superiority in the demeanor of the chief, whose countenance indicates a tranquil magnaminity of mind." [P. 10.]
