This includes all the processes and products that have relation to our daily sustenance. The second volume on Fine arts displays pictorial representations of Architecture, sculpture and Painting : Ancient and Modern : And depicts a familiarity with the beautiful sculptures of antiquity, with the noble paintings of the great modern schools and the glorious monuments of Grecian and middle-age architecture.
