1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. III
"The genius of art is typified by a beautiful youth, holding in his right hand a chisel, pencil and compass - the emblems of art. He is seated on the inverted capital of a broken column; his inspired, eager face and outstretched wings indicating the spirit within, which impels him to dare the lofty, perilous flight, to which the wings of genius are alone equal. This is a finely conceived and beautifully executed work."
