Born at Seville, 1685; died 1713. This is a fine specimen of this master in power of colour, drawing, and expression. The rotundity and relief of the figure are admirable: the carnations very pure, and the landscape powerfully expressed and boldly painted. (On canvass--3 ft 6 inh. by 5 ft. 2 inh.) [P. 7.]
Catalogue of Paintings, by the Great Masters, including Specimens of the First Class, of the Italian, Venetian, Spanish, Flemish, Dutch, French, and English Schools.
