"Rugendas, (George Philip,)--born at Augsburg in 1666. On meeting with some of the works of Borgognone he altered his style to paint battles, and the skirmishes of cavalry. His principal improvement in colouring was gained of Molinaro at Venice; and he also added to his knowledge by studying the works of the great masters at Rome. He had three manners: his third and best showed his attention to the expression, disposition, spirited action, and attitudes of the figures, and he strove to set off his designs with a suitable colouring." No. 28.--A Skirmish of Cavalry. This is a very spirited and good specimen of the master: the blue sky is very fine. [P. 23.]
