"See no. 157. This is a fair contrast to the 'little shavers' Mr. Brown has painted, and is one of his best pictures. The old man's face is full of character, and his stiff, nervous motions are well suggested. The various objects of still life - the cup, the open book, and the geranium blooming in its pot on the table, are also painted with a high degree of realism."
