Pastoral Group of a Shepherd Boy, A, Dog and Lamb, (sculpture)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 62
This splendid group was executed by the artist when in England, and was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London, and purchased by a great patron of the Arts of the city of Boston, immediately on its arrival in this country. Among other critiques, the following appeared in the New York Courier and Enquirer: . . . "Look at that brow! that radiant face!/ Those lips--those eyes--that air of grace-- . . . How can I gaze and not admire!/ Yet Oh, how catch the sculptor's fire!/ I look with wonder on the boy,/ Feel something of his placid joy--/ Sink gently on my bended knee,/ Hoping that he may smile on me--/ Then, pleased, his youthful charms survey,/ And yield again to fancy's sway. New York, January,
