Commendations of The Portrait

There is nothing like it in the Vatican.—Pius IX.

It has none of that vagueness, that dreamy spirituality about it, which many of the first critics of Arkansas have objected to in the Murillo school of Art.—Ruskin.

The expression is very interesting.—J. W. Titian.

(Keeps a macaroni store in Venice, at the old family stand.)

It is the neatest thing in still life I have seen for years.—Rosa Bonheur.

The smile may be almost called unique.—Bismarck.

I never saw such character portrayed in a pictured face before.—De Mellville.

There is a benignant simplicity about the execution of this work which warms the heart towards it as much, full as much, as it fascinates the eye.—Landseer.

One cannot see it without longing to contemplate the artist.—Frederick William.

Send me the entire edition—together with the plate and the original portrait—and name your own price. And—would you like to come over and stay a while with Napoleon at Wilhelmshöhe? It shall not cost you a cent.—William III.
