DESCRIPTION. This is a rich landscape with a hilly meadow for the foreground, on which is a group of sheep and cattle, with a second group of sheep and goats on the opposite declivity; on the left of the picture is a woman, a boy, and an ass laden descending a hill; the herbs in the foreground are painted with delicacy and truth, and the general tone and effect of the landscape is remarkably good. This picture was highly prized by its late possessor, J. Johnson, Esq. of England. [P. 36.]
