F. Miller. Ariel, 1850.

This is one of the twenty-two engravings on wood that was published by The Art Journal in 1850 (12:278) in a series entitled "Passages from the Poets." Miller's original drawing was engraved by G. Childs. This passage from The Tempest (V.i) accompanies the picture:

Merrily, merrily, shall I live now,
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.
