Transcript FLORENCE. 53 visited (the Society of Artists, of which we shall have something to say). We were most courteously received, and shown a great variety of studies made for the decoration of the walls and ceilings of the noble palaces of Genoa. These were all treated in a grand style of art; one of the subjects struck us as exceedingly fine—Galileo brought before the Inquisitors. The old man is seen leaving the chamber where cardinals and priests have been disputing with him to induce him to recant; he refuses; his expression is one of sorrow for their blindness, and he seems to say " It still goes round " as he is led to his dungeon. The artist was engaged upon a beautiful altar picture, whilst several other finished works, chiefly heads, were on easels, in different fights. We were also shown the most beautifully illuminated book backs, designed by the artist for the binding up of some precious documents belonging to one of the noble families of Genoa ; the ornamentation, colour, gilding, and design surpassed any modern work we had ever seen.
