The avowed object of the Bolognese school was to combine the excellencies of those that had preceded, and this fine picture, altho' only executed by a second rate artist, unites the breadth of Chiaro-scuro of Lionardo, the melting outline and grace of Corregio, and the dignity, simplicity and truth of Raphael. Guido Cagnacci was born in 1600, died in 1681. His works are very scarce. [P. 81.]
