Old Engravings

Frederick II of Prussia, surnamed "the Great", was born at Berlin, 1712. When about 22 years of age (1734) Frederick resided at Rheimburg, where he held a sort of small literary court, and devoted his leisure to the study of music and french literature, for both of which he had a keen and lasting admiration. He corresponded with Voltaire (who afterwards, in 1752, visited Berlin), and studied with much sympathy the philosophical doctrines which were to play such an important part in the century.
Gerome has painted the Great King at an advanced period of his life, after he had made his mark in Europe ; he has for a moment thrown aside his political and military concerns, and returned to his early love - Music. Carlyle informs us that Frederick was neither a graceful nor efficient player on the flute, but what he lacked in refinement he made up in enthusiasm.
The artist has adorned the King's appartment with a bust of his old friend Voltaire who smiles amusedly at the frivolity, as he would term it, of his kingly acquaintance. The general untidiness of the books and the presence of the fine greyhounds are in keeping with the king's recorded love for dogs, who, unmolested, ranged through the palaces wherever the King resided, and where the manners of the camp prevailed.

Jack, Sam, Shot and Puss
dated 1892
This painting has gained the artist much honor in the french saon, where it was purchased by its present owner. Three sporting dogs, a pointer, a greyhound and a setter, priviliged visitors, have been temporarily admitted to their master's bed-room, where enthroned on her chair unconcernedly sits the domestic cat. The array of powder-flasks, gun and game bag which hang in the niche behind the cabinet, bespeak the master of the house a votary of "La Chasse".
Louis Eugene Lambert was born at Paris in 1835. He was a pupil of Delacroix. Was decorated in 1875 "Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur".
