After MURILLO. r. 2. 4LA VEIRGE AU ROSAIRE.' Murillo This beautiful conception of Murillo represents the Virgin and Child, supported by Angels. The original painting is in the Dulwich Gallery, and the engraving was executed by BOBERT GRAVES, A.R.A, Published at One Guinea. 4THE GOOD SHEPHERD.' Murillo The touching simplicity of this great work and the homely and yet sacred nature of the feelings to which It appeals, appear almost to render any description unnecessary. In the foreground the Saviour, clad in the simple garb of a shepherd, is seen leading back to the distant fold those that have strayed. His right hand, conferring strength and hope by its gentle touch, rests for a moment on the head of one of the flock, while on the left another lies worn out, but lifting towards the Master an appealing, trustful gaze. The beautiful, boylike face of the Saviour Shepherd is turned towards heaven, and the light on that face is marvellous indeed. It is well known that Murillo made it one of the great studies of his life to fix on canvas beautifui boy-faces, copying them at first with the accuracy peculiar to his school from the types seen in the market-places of his native land of Spain. Public and private galleries have many of these, but the face of the boy-shepherd with its heavenly expression, yet tender human grace is unsurpassed. The engraving is by the late ROBERT GRAVES, A.R. A., and the style is all that could be desired. The original picture is in the possession of Baron Mayer de Rothschild, M.P. Published at One Guinea. 4 THE HOLY FAMILY.'
