Born 1619; died 1690; aged 71. Styled the Guilio Romano of France, and the most celebrated painter of his time. He showed abundance of grandeur in the disposition of his subject; in all his compositions he had a particular attention to express the passions of the soul aggreeably to nature; and, excepting a few of his capital performances, there is a predominance of one tint; the airs of his heads are often the same, though well chosen, graceful, and full of elegance. The specimen before us is finely coloured. The attitude of St. John is bold and expressive. [P. 12.]
