This famous picture, the property of Lord Yarborough, will continue en view at Messrs. Colnaghi's till the 20th; being destined for engraving by Mr. llcniy Cousins. The subject is the wreck of the Minotaur- on the coast of Holland; and the work numbers already some forty years of age. The scene is represented with striking vividness and distinctness, and with that peculiar completeness of life and motion—that seizing of a moment and fixing of the ever-shifting—which distinguished the great painter. It is one of the finest marine Turners, and excellently adapted for engraving.
