"(Germ.) Munich. Monk taking snuff. 24 x 29. Good natured benignity, wrinkled old age and constitutional antipathy to water speak from this canvass with uncommon force. The face is 'ripe' and mellow, the eyes bleared and bibulous, the hands firmly drawn and splendidly painted, even to the dirt under the finger nails. In a purely artistic point of view, this is a most attractive old friar."
