N.B. The air and color of the head with the golden hair was imitated from a picture of Titian, called a portrait of his daughter, but not the character, or the disposition of the hair, which in the portrait is a crop; the action of the portrait is also different--holding up a casket with both hands. The rest of the picture, with the exception of the curtain in the back-ground, is original. [P. 7.]
