(Germ.) Munich. Known as the Meissonier of Germany. Der Schuetzenkoenig. 13 x 20. The king of the riflemen. The hardy, steel-nerved veteran has borne the prize away from all his competitors, and has returned with the flag of victory. the look and stride of the doughty old crack shot proclaim his envied eminence. In the left hand corner are the inevitable fiddle, cornet and double bass, furnishing the regulation amount of noise. Friends sit enjoying themselves at a table. Through the open door is seen a marksman just firing at the target. The execution of this picture speaks for itself."
