"(Span. Roman born.) Paris. Med. 1st cl. 1878. Legion of honor 1878. La belle desoeuvree. 25 x 26. A broadly treated canvas, the subject of which would probably be called in France by the above title, or, as we should say, 'an unemployed beauty.' She is sitting in some public resort with a half- finished glass of lemonade before her, evidently interested in something going on elsewhere. A bold, masterly study of blues, grays and flesh tints."
