Oary has bought from the Duveen
Brothers a bust by Houdon por'raymg
the sculptor's daughter. Sabine Houdon.
at the age of eighteen months. The
bust is executed in marble and displays
the eighteenth century genius for
depicting the childishness of childhood.
I? will t e remembered that when this
bust of the young Sabine came up for
?ale last June at the dispersal of the
Doucet collection in Pans, there was a
furious competition between the Duveen
Brothers and Mr. Selsgman. and that
it finally went to the Duvcrni for a
sum very little short of tlOO.000.
Houdon was born in Versailles in 174?.
He came tri this country in 17sj with
Benjamin Franklin to make studies for
a statue of Washington destined for trhe
Capitol of Virginia, and stayed with
Washington at Mount Vcrnon during
his visit to this country.
