This is a beautiful portrait of a lady (said to resemble the Princess of Capua,) deeply absorbed in the contemplation of a miniature, which she holds in one hand, whilst the head is supported by the other in a reclining position. The exquisite finish given to this painting, the splendid drapery of the white satin robe, the limbs starting from the canvass, in fact the "tout ensemble," show to what perfection the art can arrive; and render it a perfect study. [P. 8.]
Pupil of David.
