Excerpt from book:
Sea of Japan, April 13, 1904. A surviving sailor thus describes the scene: "Smoke arose in dense clouds and flames seemed to leap toward the bridge. I remember falling masts and then nothing more.

His last picture, entitled "Admiral Makaroff in Counsel with his Officers," went down with him, but was later recovered practically undamaged. The various periods of his activity may be divided as follows : Early pictures; Caucasian series; Turkestan series; Russo-Turkish war series (to which belongs the "Snow Pass of Schipka" in this collection) ; Indian series (to which belongs "Hindoos blown from the Guns," in the Affiliated Colleges of the University of California) ; Syria and Palestine series (to which belongs "The Jews Wailing Place, Jerusalem," in this collection); Napoleonic series; miscella- neus pictures and last pictures. Snow Pass of Schipka. On canvas; w. 2' 6'/i", h. 1' 10J4". 24 The Jews Wailing-Place, Jerusalem. On canvas; w. 4' ll'A", h. 6' 6". DRAWINGS, ETCHINGS AND ENGRAVINGS BARTOLOZZI, Francesco.

His real reputation, however, was made in England, where he arrived in 1764, and was shortly thereafter appointed engraver to the King, at a salary of £3oo a year. In 1768 he was made a Royal Academician. His indefatigable energy, combined with a highly...
