Narrative: (From the original critique): The statue of "The Day-Dream " was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1853 : whether the lines appended to the title in the Catalogue suggested the work, or were introduced to explain the sentiment which the sculptor intended the figure should convoy, is of little importance, farther than they afford us an insight of his meaning:- A sudden thought-all sweetness in its depths, And yet perplexed by some vague doubt that came Like to a shadow playing in the sun- Entranced her as she stood with poised foot And downward eyes; a dream of past and future, With music in it from afar, now low And pensive, now with songs and cymbals gay! What was that thought? " This statue is the work of a mind thoroughly imbued with the graces of Greek sculpture; it shows the refined beauty which is ascribed to our female heads, while the body and limbs are exquisitely modelled ; the feeling and the execution are alike worthy of all praise.
