Born 1728; died 1799. A picture of great beauty and was considered [a] Barroccio by the Spanish Academy--to whom the engraving would warrant its being applied,--but it has been pronounced by a clever English critic to be one of those charming copies--Painted by Mengs for the Court of Spain. (On copper--1 ft. 2 inh. by 1 ft. 10 1/2 inh.) [P. 15; see entry 01850029 for companion piece.]
