Author of the Bibliotheca Hispanica, and Canon of Seville. Born at Seville in 1617. Created a Knight of the order of Santiago by Charles II. Died in 1684. Although he had been wealthy, yet, from devoting his fortune to benevolent objects, and his attention to literary pursuits, he left, at his death, nothing but his extensive library, consisting of more than 80,000 volumes, and some valuable unpublished manuscripts, which were afterwards published under the patronage and at the expense of Cardinal d'Aguisine. A work by Antonio was published for the first time at Valencia in 1742, entitled "Censura de Historias Fabulas; obra postuma" Folio. This picture is from the Meade Gallery. It is by Alonzo Cano; born at Granada, in Spain, in 1600; died in 1676. He obtained the distinction of being called the Michael Angelo of Spain, because he excelled alike in painting, sculpture and architecture. [P. 13; exhibited under note indicating that this work is among those "from the private collection of Lt. Col. J.D. Graham, U.S.A. The explanations and descriptions are printed as furnished by him."]
