Two handsome marble statues, by John of Boulogne, representing the Holy Virgin Mary and St. Joseph returning from Egypt. The figures are 3 feet high and have been made for a royal chapel of Italy. The celestial expression of Joseph and Jesus Christ is beyond all description; it is also hardly to be expressed by words the feeling shown by the divine features of the Virgin. These two statues have been very much admired by all the connoisseurs. [P. 18.]
