After Claude Lorraine.--De Grailly. This is a correct copy painted to order, from the original in the Louvre. A pastoral scene is represented, near the centre of which rises a clump of trees, and to the right a river flowing in gentle cascades towards the side; on its opposite shore is seen a complex on the summit of a green hill, and beyond, a prominent cliff with mountains receding in the distance. In the foreground, on the right, is a group of two women, a girl, and a man; the latter playing on a pipe, to the music of which one of the former is making the dog dance. On the left are cows and goats drinking at a stream, attended by a herdsman, and in the distance two figures approaching from a castle. The whole scene is suffused with the gorgeous splendor of a summer evening. [P. 3.]
