The original painting is in the Dulwich Gallery, and the engraving v/aj executed by ROBERT GRAVES, A.R.A. Published at One Guinea. 'THE 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 rendur 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, re.its for a moment on the head of one of the fljck, while on the left another lies worn out, but lifting towards the VIaster an appealing, trustful gaze. The beautiful, boylike face of the Saviour Shrpherd 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 beautiful 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 ifrany 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 *tyle is all that could be desired. The original picture is in the possession of Baron Mayer do Rothschild, MP. Published at One Guinea. Murillo This magnificent picture is one of the chef d'aeuvves of our National Gallery, and must be well known to most of our readers.
