Jepson Field Book volume 15 page 60
Description:
Paris  = We went this morning to the Louvre. I soon found that Mr. Heermann was a good art student with matured ideas and it was a great privilege to have him take me through the great art collections. One could easily spend two weeks in the Louvre but as a preliminary survey one day had to do for me. My cicerone is especially interested in ancient and mediaeval art and so we did not spend all the time on the oil paintings but gave much attention to the ancient collections, Grecian and Roman statuary, Roman mosaics, etc. As we came ::::::::: February 8, 1906.  down a staircase he said: Fine tubs they had in those days!" It was a Roman bath tub of beautiful proportions, simply and most sparingly decorated. And it looked as if made yesterday. Among the multitude of things I might have overlooked it as a modern ornament. "Englishman wouldn't carry that round the world, would he?" There was always a little burst of humor at intervals with Mr. Herrmann which made him very good company.
