"(Ital.) Rome. Sentinel of Louis XV. 37 x 43. ' A picture of remarkable style is the Romako, a life-size, well-grown enslaver, of the time of Louis Quinze, executed with commanding dash and perfect mastery of technic. The cherry lipped beauty looks almost too fresh for her situation. The orgies of the "parc aux cerfs" were too puncutally begun at midnight, lasting over till midday for the "sentenelle" who parades, in her laced and cocked hat and with her jeweled musket, in front of the retreat, to retain this look of keen enjoyment of life and deviltry under the glare of day light. there is a good deal of the "deuce" about these high-stepping jades when they are quietest, and the witchcraft on this occasion has got into the brushes that painted so miraculous a study.' - New York graphic."
