This portrait of one of our most respected fellow-citizens is enlarged from the figure of him in Hooker's celebrated painting of "The Battle at Lookout Mountain," a magnificent reminiscence of the late war. During a visit, Mr. Reynolds paid Mr. Walker's studio in New York, he was so pleased, with the life-like fidelity of the whole scene, that the artist wished to make a separate equestrian portrait of him. Consent was given, and through the kindness of Mr. Reynolds the work is now exhibited for the first time. The likeness is a wonderfully accurate one, and will be considered all the more marvelous when it is known that it was painted wholly from a small photograph. [P. 20.]
