"Bartolome Esteban Murillo (see no. 551.) Beggar boys playing dice. 32 x 52. This and the succeeding copies of Murillo's pictures convey a very good notion of the class of subjects in which he at first delighted, as well as of the general characteristics of his drawing and painting at the outset of his career. " All the originals of the above pictures by Murillo are in the old Royal Pinakothek, Munich." (see serial 04120377 for commentary on artist.
