An original and very valuable painting, by the favourite scholar of Raphael Sanzio, representing "Dido abandoned," on wood; executed in 1530, in Mantua, for a noble family of that city. The scrupulous correctness of the drawing, and the striking softness of the flesh, make this work one of the most precious paintings of Guilio Romano. [Pp. 11-12.]
