The artist is a talented young man,
and all his works are distinguished
by careful execution, minute anato-

D. Nicolina de Assis, a pupil
of Rodolpho Bernardelli, had two
interesting works, a study of a
head, with a certain grace of
contour; and a very delicately
treated little sleeping girl. Auguste
Girardet had two admirable portraits
of Admirals Barroso and Tamandare
in bas-relief, and some fine medals
and cameos, in which he is a past-

were some fine designs for markets
and theatres by Adolfo Morales de los
Rios, who received the Gold Medal; and a design
for a church in S. Paulo, by Victor Dubugras.

his memory as well as to that of
the subject of the present work.

racy humour and insight into character,
are delightful reading. He touches
