"(Fr.) Paris. Pupil of Picot and Cabanal. Medal 3rd cl. 1875, Med. 2nd cl. 1882. Marguerite. 12 x 16. Kneeling by Michael Angelo's Pieta (the art name given to the dead Christ in the virgin's lap), Marguerite gives full vent to her remorse and grief. Her companions in the distance are calling one another's attention to the fallen girl. Drawing, color, light and shade and perspective are next to faultless in this work."
