FRENCH SCHOOL. oooooooo CL. GELÉE. 00000000 PRIVATE COLLECTION.

LANDSCAPE.

VIEW ON THE SEASIDE.

It is difficult by engraving to render pictures whose principal merit consists in the beauty and truth of the colouring; but the present one, from the vast extent it embraces, lends to the imagination the most agreeable ideas. Near the borders of a calm sea, apparently in the vicinity of Naples, is seated a female who seems affected at hearing the approach of some one impatiently expected.

This picture, painted in 1658 for Francis Aberici, has since successively passed into the collection of Furnow, Humphrey and Morrès, from which it was engraved, in 1742, by Vivarès. The engraving we now present is in an inverted order from that of the picture.

Breadth, 3 feet 3 inches; height; 3 feet 5 inches.
