One of his first works of I hi i kind was the

Flnxmnn olten uvd to say in jest before

in his prophecy, nfler nil. You see wedlock

Ami's reply may ho easily imagined.
When the bigwigs of the Royal Academy
heard of Klavm.in's return, nnd especially
when they lind nn opportunity ol seeing nnd
nditih ing his noble pnrtrail-statiio of Mans

mining their number. Thn Royal Academy
has alwnys had the art nf " running lo the
help of the sirongesln nnd when mi nrtist
has proved that he enn nchievn n reputation
without the Academy, then is tho Academy
must anxious to " patronize" him. The
Academy, it will he remembered, had given
its gold medal to his unworthy couqreiiior,
I'uglehcart, passing hy his own liir superior
work. He had then felt bitterly vexed, hut
determined thnt tho next time ho modelled
lor lbs Academy it should he ns n master he
would deserve nml he would command their
npplause. I'cr'uips, too, ho had not forgotten
the president's cruel cot when Flaxman told
him ho had married "Yon nre ruined for
life ns nil artist." Well! hn had pot over
both these slights. The wounds had healed
kindly, ninl ho had nn desire to keep alive
the giicvauce. I la allowed his name to he
prop sed in the candidates' list of nssociutes,
and was immediately elected. In the course
of the same year (I7U7) ho exhibited his
monument ol i?ir William Jones, nml several
bns rebels from tho New Testument, which
were greatly nduiircd.

would seem to be n liivoiite expression with
