By PETER VLERICK, a Flemish Historical Painter, born at Courtney, in 1539, and died 1581, aged 42; he was first instructed by William Snellart, an artist who painted in distemper, with whom he continued for a long time. He afterwards attained the friendship of Tintoretto; and by studying the works of that excellent Painter, and observing his instructions, he acquired a good style of colouring, as well as composition.
