Excerpt from Historic Gallery of Portraits and Paintings, and Biographical Review, Vol. 6: Containing a Brief Account of the Lives of the Most Celebrated Men, in Every Age and Country; And Graphic Imitations of the Finest Specimens of the Arts, Ancient and Modern; With Remarks, Critical and Explanatory

This statue in marble, of the proportion of six feet, is placed in the Hall of the Institute, at Paris. It is considered one of the best productions of an artist, who, by his other works, has reflected honour on French sculpture.

M. Lebreton, perpetual secretary of the fine arts in the Institute, delivered an admirable eulogium on the merits of this excellent statuary, who died in the month of December, 1804, in his seventy-fourth year. The limits of our publication not permitting us to report the whole of his discourse, we must confine ourselves to the following passage, which has a reference to the subject before us.

"M. Julien had undertaken the statue of Poussin, but peculiar circumstances, far from exciting him to other labours, compelled him so slowly to execute this work, that he considered it as his last production. He appeared desirous of living only to finish it, Nature, in a manner, but granted him his request. He died three months after its exhibition at the Louvre.

"The subject presented two considerable difficulties; one, so common to all statuaries - the stiffness of the modern costume: the other, to give an exact resemblance of the features of Poussin.
