By DOLCI, (Carlo or Carlino,) a Florentine Painter, born at Florence, in 1616, and died in 1686, aged 70; he was a disciple of Jacopo Vignali. His first attempt was a whole picture of St. John, painted when he was only eleven years of age. He afterwards painted a portrait of his mother, which gained him universal applause, and placed him in the highest rank of merit. Dolci was extremely fond of painting Sacred Subjects. [Pp. 13-14.]
