"1528-1588. This artist's drawings were remarkable for their truth. In the principles of his coloring, he is identical with Titian and the other great masters of Venice; yet, through the magnificence of his works, he may be said to have established a style of his own. Such distinguished talents could not fail to obtain an honorable recompense from the state. He was engaged upon the decoration of several public buildings, and was created a Knight of St. Marc by the Senate. The monks of San Sebastian at Venice caused him to be interred in their church, where he had executed his first works." [P. 14.]
