Narrative: This group was exhibited in 1849 at the Royal Academy, under the title of "A Nymph of Diana taking a Thorn from a Greyhound's Foot." Within a year from that time the sculptor's career was brought to a premature close, so that the work may be regarded as one of the last on which his hand was engaged, as it may also be considered one of his best. The last piece of sculpture exhibited by him was very similar in subject to this, a marble group of "A Huntress with a Leveret and Greyhound." Subjects of this class are scarcely calculated to draw forth the highest powers of the sculptor, nor the highest embodiments which the art is capable of producing. They belong to the realistic, rather than to the poetical and ideal school; they afford ample scope for accurate modeling of forms, but little opportunity for the superior attributes of graceful action and intellectual expression. As a consequence, we see in the group here engraved a natural realization of the incident represented, without much poetical feeling or allusion. The figure of the nymph is well modeled, the limbs boldly, rather than delicately, formed, as suited to one whose home is in the forest, and her chief occupation is-"With bender bow to follow the deer." The attitude into which the lower limbs are thrown is the most elegant, the dog and the huntress are parts of a whole. It is quite evident that the work, was well and carefully studied.
