"(Germ.) Duesseldorf. 'A fig for your books.' 12 x 16. The young hopeful whom the painter has kept in after school, presumably for idleness, appears not to have made the slightest advance with his task. One book lies unopened on the desk, the other has been thrown on the floor: our hero is meditatively whistling, just for company. His eye shows that his mind is outside with his playfellows. Apart from the solitary actor, the picture, as an interior, is very conscientiously painted and is a little work of great promise."
