Born at Venice in 1697--died 1770, aged 73. This great artist is recorded to have been one of the last eminent painters of the Venetian School. He was a scholar of Gregorio Lazzarni, . . . DESCRIPTION. This beautiful cabinet specimen represents the presentation of banners, after a conquest, to one of the Roman Emperors, who is seated on his throne under a triumphal arch, the grouping of figures on each side of which, is admirable; the foreshortening of the two musicians in the foreground is inimitable; the drawing is perfect, the casting of the draperies, the grandeur of the colouring, the distribution of the lights and shadows, and the bold, free, and spirited pencilling is not inferior to P. Veronese. This beautiful picture adorned the collection of J. Taylor Esq. of England. [Pp. 46-47.]
