By ARPINO, (or Guiseppe d', or Gioseppino, Car.) a celebrated Historical Painter, born at the Castle of Arpino at Naples in 1560, and died at Rome in 1640, aged 80; this Artist when a boy, was placed under some Painters employed in the Vatican, at the time of Gregory the 13th, who observing his genius, allowed him a crown of gold a day--he arose as an Artist to the highest honors and dignities, his productions every where sought after. The Marquis of Stafford has a very highly finished picture of the Cavalier d'Arpino, from the circumstance of the Fall of the Angels.--It represents several naked figures falling in all the terror of discomfiture, and one above them, clad in armour and drapery as if in the act of driving them before him,--all the faces and bodies are highly finished and finely fore-shortened.
