Of the school of Ribera. Born, Naples, 1634; died 1693. One of the most celebrated painters in Italy of hunting, fowling, and fishing pieces. The one before us is evidently more after the study of Ribera; it is fine, vigorous, and powerful, and painted with great solidity and decision. He was admired for his beautiful colouring, which he acquired in Lombardy. He resided for many years at the court of Spain, from which this, with many others in the collection, was originally brought. [P. 11.]
