"(Span.) the visit to the chateau. 30 x 24. A scene which leaves full scope to the play of the imagination. The costumes would make this fair company belong to the latter end of the seventeenth century. refinement and elegance characterize the party to whom the old warden is explaining possibly the meaning of the banner or the episcopal armorial bearings over the door. The picture is a brilliant memento of bygone days and fashions."
