The Trumbull Collection. Belonging to Yale College. The pictures in this collection were painted by John Trumbull, Colonel in the Revolutionary Army. Among them are eight subjects from the American Revolution, with nearly two hundred and fifty portraits of persons distinguished in that important period, painted from life. (Suspended beneath these interesting works will be found an explanatory key.) The large portrait, painted from life, is perhaps, in some respects, the most satisfactory portrait ever painted of Washington. Colonel Trumbull being at one time "Aid de camp" to Gen. Washington, his opportunities as an artist of becoming familiar with the character and person of his subject, render this a work of extraordinary interest. [P. 3.]
