"Peter Paul Rubens. (1577-1640.) Antwerp. Portrait of his wife. 39 x 69. This is as good a copy as could well be wished of this celebrated portrait, of which the original is now in the Belvidere Galley, of Vienna. It was painted by August Fink, of Munich, and does the highest credit to the powers of that artist. For a copy, it possesses extraordinary freedom of drawing and handling, superb flesh painting and great transparency. The number of such copies painted in our day, is not great."
