"(Germ.) Berlin. Pupil of Sohn. Gold medal of Prussia, 1850. One of the foremost of living painters. Girl reading. 14 x 18. A simple, pure, beautiful conception. The concious- ness, intelligence and artless frankness which look out of this child's eyes are a marvel. The quality and tone of the lights - the one falling direct from the casement on the tresses and arm of the girl, the other reflected on the face from the pages of the book, are differentiated with consummate skill."
