"Unknown. Ceres and Jason. 33 x 40. Ceres had a lover, Jason, whom she was accustomed to meet in a 'thrice-plowed' field in Crete. Of these Plutus, the god of wealth, was born. A very happy, pointed way of putting the argument that careful agriculture is the basis of national wealth - an undeniable proposition. The picture is strong with the exception of Ceres' left arm, which looks as though it had been repainted, and from the elbow down, drawn out of all proportion."
