"BRILL, (Paul,) born at Antwerp in 1554. "He lived long in Italy and painted landscapes, the figures in which were sometimes painted by Annibal Caracci. His pictures without being particularly sublime, breathe a calm repose,--a serene and equitable tone of feeling, and the mouldering ruins of Roman greatness, which he delighted to paint, convey an impression of solemn melancholy." No. 1.--A LANDSCAPE with an arm of the sea reaching to the foreground on the left, with fishes and birds represented in it, and mariner in shells on the shore; on the right, in the foreground two saints, one with the Bible open in one hand, whilst the other is extended with an expressive gesture; the other saint stands behind with his hands and figure in an attitude and gesture of adoration, the object of which is shown by a small image of the Saviour on the open Bible; in the background a high hill, at the base of which [is] a city, and on the right, green foliage, trees, &c. [P. 8.]
