To the composition of this picture the painter called all his knowledge of character and all his skill in expressing it; and it cannot be denied that it breathes with life throughout its length and breadth. It is true that memories which retain clear impres sions of the Penny Bridals of the north may have treasured up scenes of a noisier and more bustling kind; and I have heard men affirm that they have seen bridals where gray heads wagged merrier, and young feet moved lighter, where old dames were more joyous, and maidens warmed up by music and love look more rosy and enchanting. Against pic tures of the memory, aided as they always are by the imagination, no works of any artist can stand.
