"FRA BARTOLOMEO DI SANTO MARCO--Born near Florence in 1469--he died, in the Convent of St. Marc, in 1517 . . . . He is distinguished by the tender, serious and deeply religious feeling which he imparted to his Saints and Madonnas, (subjects to which he generally confined himself), and he is also remarkable for the depth and harmony of colouring, which is soft, transparent and rather dark in tone. . . ." No. 27.--THE NATIVITY--on panel.--This is a very fine picture by this great master, and not much inferior to the one in the Gallery at Munich, (a Virgin and Child) which is, without any exception, the finest picture in that noble gallery. His works are very scarce and highly prized. In the sale of the late Mr. Coesvelt's pictures, the Fra Bartolomeo sold for 6000 gunieas. [Pp. 37-38; the phrases "very scarce" and "highly prized" appear in italics in the catalogue.]
