The most important work of a famous master affords a fine contrast, in treatment and color, to the work of Bouguereau, of similar motive. Lacking the brilliancy of tint and pose--theatrical in the best sense--of the latter, it affords a transparency of shadow, and tender softness of color in the light, most admirable.
