"(Span.) Paris. Pupil of Madrazo. 'El Pelel.' The effigy. 37 x 27. The effigy of Judas is being tossed in a blanket, on easter eve, according to an old Spanish custom. The principal group of actors in this scene are alive to the fun, and are quite Spanish in garb and feature. The passing monk with his load of eatables suggests the end of lent. There are thirty- five figures in this characteristic, excellent canvas."
