"Holbein, (Hans or John,) born, it is said, at Basil [sic] in 1498. He resided long in England. His pencil was exceedingly tender, his colouring had force, he finished his pictures with exquisite neatness, and his carnations were life itself. His genuine works are always to be distinguished by the round imitation of flesh visible in his portraits." No. 29.--Portrait of a Lady--on panel--in the full dress of the time. A very good specimen of the master. [P. 12.]
