"Eugen Hess. Copy by Geisler. Munich. The convent's guest. 20 x 34. In this excellent copy, the creature comforts of the convent are plied upon the guest for a purpose best known to the abbot who is entertaining him. As a study of a monastic interior, the picture has much merit. The original is no. 83 in the new Royal Pinakothek, Munich."
