“This pretty little subject stands in the Sculpture Room [in the Royal Academy annual exhibition], on the left as you enter. The story, or rather the situation, is well described: the ‘Wanderer’ wrapping his cloak around him to protect himself from the pitiless blast, turns an upward look to heaven, expressive of his miserable and forlorn position. It is nicely executed” (571).
