COYPEL, (Noel,) born at Paris in 1628, was director of the French Academy at Rome in 1672. His last and best work was the vault of the Sanctuary of Invalids. Waagen says of him: "Reminiscences of Raphael and Poussin are skilfully applied; in his best works, the colouring is delicate, warm and clear, the execution careful." No. 52.--THE ANNUNCIATION, in coloring is very delicate, warm and clear, and the faces of the angels are very engaging. [P. 8.]
