The original of this Sunset was painted by DENIS, a Swiss who resided at Rome. The Cow which stands across the horizon is admirably placed, and the rough and weedy foreground in its burnt brown colour contrasts well with the roseate gold of the glowing sky. Such skies are sometimes seen in America, but oftener in Italy. [P. 13.]
