"Through the generosity of Hon. Henry J. Furber, '59, of Chicago, one of the vacant panels upon the south side of the chapel will soon be filled. The painting will be upon canvas, mounted on a movable stretcher, and will, undoubtedly, be finer than any of those which at present adorn the walls of King Chapel. Mr. Frederic Vinton, of Boston, one of the finest portrait painters in the country, will be the artist. The subject selected is "Adam and Eve," by Flandrin, one of the decorations in the church of Saint Germain des Pres, Paris. The original is regarded as exceptionally fine, and the treatment is said to be so masterly that one may there observe the expression upon their countenances, which everyone expects to find, but which is generally made subservient to beauty and fineness of form." - Bowdoin Orient.
