A spirited picture of the early manner of the master. It is full of life and action. Virginia has just dropped from the murderous knife of Virginius; Icilius interferes to stop the fury of the soldiers; while the riot commences in the marketplace, Appius Claudius is in alarm for his safety; his character, as also the life and action of the scene, is well expressed. The colouring is excellent. [P. 29.]
