"(Germ.) Duesseldorf. Medal 3rd cl. 1859; med. 2nd cl. 1861. Legion of Honor, 1863. Garibaldi's caprera home. 26 x 18. this canvas represents a humble dwelling on the island of caprera, which lies east of the north point of sardinia, in the mediterranean. Here Garibaldi lived from 1854 until his death, with the exception of the time spent in his famous Italian campaigns. The lowly house and its stern, rugged surroundings, force us to compare the greatness of the man with the modesty of his desires. The thoroughly southern atmosphere and the dreamy warmth thrown into this picture are very characteristic of this celebrated painter."
