CHAPTER III
PRIVATE LETTERS 1842-1843

some proper setting for the miniature, unsuccessfully at present.
Instead of going to Chiswick for the horticultural display, with my friends the Stopfords, I took advantage of the absence of people from the Exhibition.(1) Three pictures struck me particularly. A scene in Hamlet, the play scene, by Maclise. The Queen is most admirable ; but Hamlet is vulgar and too old. In reality he could not be twenty. All the accessories are admirable. There is another piece containing only Ophelia. She is sitting under a withered tree ; her feet naked, and hanging over the water in which she was so soon to die. The flowers are going down the stream. She has thrown in almost the last of them. Her countenance is mild and melancholy, and very beautiful. Even in the position of her feet there is pathos.
Landseer has several pictures all worthy of his skill and genius. One of them is equal in execution and invention to any work of the English school. He calls it the Sanctuary. A hart has been pursued, and has taken to the water of a wide lake in Scotland. He has just reached a desert island, just within his utmost power of swimming from the mainland

1 At the Royal Academy in 1842 were exhibited, "The Play Scene in Hamlet" (No. 6z), by Daniel Maclise, R.A. ;"Ophelia" (No. 7 t), by R. Redgrave, R.A. ; and "The Sanctuary" (No. 43t), by E. Landseer, R.A. The first picture is now in the National Gallery, the second in the Tate Gallery, and the third at Windsor Castle.
