A fine specimen of the Venetian School, and has abundance of force and truth. In the works of this master, the local colors are well observed--the carnations are fresh and brilliant; the Chiaro Scuro and perspective well understood. His touch is free and spirited, and the distance in his landscapes are always true. His pictures are readily known from the similitude of character and countenance in the figures and animals; from the taste of the buildings, utensils and draperies, and, besides, from a purple or violet tint that predominates in every one of them. Painted by Jacomo Bassan; born at Bassano, 1510, died, 1592. [P. 5.]
