"no authorities at hand contain any definite information conerning this artist, but her talent is well recognized. She was represented at the Centennial Exposition by a picture entitled 'a Neapolitan.' " An old antiquary. An old man is looking through a small lens at an antique statuette which he holds in his hand. The table before him is covered with bric-a-brac, jewels, and various antique articles, all reproduced with marvelous fidelity to nature. The expression in the man's face is a wonderful study."
