"(Fr.) Paris. Pupil of Pils. Medal 3rd cl. 1880. A dream. 70 x 104. Out of the horn of morpheus, typical of sleep, emerges a fair, ethereal form, breaking the chains of slumber from her wrists and apparently about to float away. This picture was painted to order for a Russian prince for the sum of twenty thousand francs."
