We only have to repeat the very words pronounced by Abbe Misserini, in his judgment about this painting. "The Lucretia," he says, "is, in my opinion, to be enumerated among the handsomest and the most perfect works of Guido, viz: the Aurora, the Helena, the Herodiades, and the Magdalene; and I am proud to see that all the most intelligent professors, who have scrutinized it, have expressed the same opinion." The engraving of this very valuable painting, is to be published in Florence by one of the most reputable Italian engravers. Subscriptions to that publication are received by Mr. Sanguinetti, at $4 per copy, payable on delivery. [Pp. 7-8.]
