"(Germ.) Rome. Coming ashore. 40 x 58. The subject of this painting is an everyday episode, but the handsome young boatman carrying the tambourine girl looks as though his fair charge might be weighing more on his mind than on his arms. The composition is a good specimen of the modern Italian school."
