"Floris, (Francis,) he was born in Antwerp in 1520, and practised as a Sculptor, till he was twenty. He afterwards travelled to Rome, and on his return his manner of composition, so different from that of his countrymen, gained him the honorable distinction of the "Raffaelle of Flanders," though not very appropriately. He generally gave great roundness to his figures; and though they were so well handled as to bear a close inspection, yet at a distance new beauties are frequently discoverable." No. 32.--A Holy Family--on panel--characteristic in colouring and design. [P. 10.]
