THE MUSIC of THE PAST BY P. A. BRIDGMAN

full-length portraits of children of the same family, ing canvas,"in which the painter of proud families
and the Marchesa Elena Grimaldi, a huge, overbear- displays the skill if not all the charm that won him

his success in his day and his uninterrupted acclaim
ever since. A portrait of Van Dyck's intimate
