Excerpt from Catalogue of Paintings
In singular contrast with these reﬂections, is the idea that this stupendous work has not been preserved to our country, but is destined for another people's enjoyment and cultivation of the fine arts. The expatriation of such a monu ment of German talent and German application must be sincerely regretted; and although endeavors to retain it are now no longer wanting, they all come too late, as the picture has finally passed into the possession of a private gentleman in New York. Prosaically speaking. Any of our cities, and more particularly Berlin, the capital, might have derived material advantage from its acquisition.
