"Dolci, (Carlo,) born at Florence in 1616. He limited himself to the confined circle of Madonnas and Saints, and in these subjects has displayed a peculiar gentleness, grace, and delicacy. His pencil was tender, his touch inexpressively neat, and his colouring transparent, though he has often been censured for the excessive labour bestowed on his pictures, and for giving his carnations more the appearance of ivory than the look of flesh." No. 54.--A Madonna.--One of his most finished works. [P. 9.]
