This fine little cabinet specimen, representing the Magdalen reading in a Landscape, is copied by that admirable artist Lodovico Caracci from the well known picture in the Dresden Gallery by the illustrious Correggio. Ludovico in this picture has most faithfully delineated the just principles upon which the great author of the subject executed his works. There are a number of fine copies from this picture by different artists, and it is presumed that this will not be surpassed, if equalled, by any of them. From the Collection of Charles B. Plestow Esq. of England. [P. 19.]
