rara; on his 
master's death 
(1601) he went to Rome and assisted Anni- 
bale Carracci, from whose designs he exe- 
cuted frescos in the Palazzo Farnese. 
Among his earliest original works are the 




! Assumption, in a chapel of S. Agostino 
1 (which gave him reputation), and a Virgin 
j in the Clouds with Saints (1621-25), cupola 
of S. Andrea della Valle. This work had 
been promised to Domenichino, who had 
already painted the walls, and Lanfranco 
was thus brought into direct competition 
with that great artist In 1631 he went to 
Naples and executed works in the Gesii, now 
destroyed, and in other churches, remaining- 
there until 1646, when he returned to Rome. 
Among his best pictures are St. Louis feed- 
ing the Poor, Venice Academy, and Libera- 
tion of St. Peter, Palazzo Colonna, Rome.

at first scarcely distinguishable. Euskin, 
Stones of Venice, iii. 302 ; Zanotto, 631. 

By Tintoretto, S. Trovaso (SS. Gervasio e 
Protasio), Venice ; canvas. While the rest 
of the apostles are intently listening to 
Christ's words, one of them (Judas?) is 
stooping to help himself to wine from a 
flask on the floor. So much repainted as 
to be hardly worth notice. A similar pict-

a landscape painter of Antwerp, and brother 
of Francesco Lauri (1610-35), a famous pu- 
pil of Andrea Sacchi, but who died young, 
after exciting the greatest hopes. Filippo, 
who was deformed, had instruction from 
Francesco, and afterwards from Caroselli, 
who married his sister ; but he abandoned 
the style of the latter, and devoted himself 
to painting lively and humorous cabinet 



pictures. He executed these with so much 
spirit that his works were in great demand 
in Rome. He worked sometimes conjointly 
with Claude Lorrain, painting the figures in 
the latter 's landscapes. His largest picture 
is Adam and Eve, in S. M. della Pace, Rome.

Spain, was archdeacon in Rome under Pope |

century. After the death of Sixtus, Law- 
rence, commanded to give up the treasures 
of the Church, distributed them among the 
poor, and presenting himself before the 



prefect, accompanied by his beneficiaries, 
declared that these were the riches of the 
Church. The prefect, Cornelius Secularis, 
angered at this reply, ordered him to be 
roasted on a gridiron until he should com- 
ply with his orders. In the picture by Ru-

Bristol, 
}I ay 4 , 
1769," died 
in London, 
January 7, 
1830. Por- 
trait paint- 
er, son of a 
Bristol inn- 
keeper who 
had known 
better days. 

At the age of ten he took crayon 
portraits at Oxford and copied his- 
torical pictures, and before he was 
twelve he had drawn Mrs. Siddons 
in crayons and made his studio at 
Bath a fashionable resort. He be- 
gan to paint in oils in his seven- 
teenth year, and succeeded so well, 
in his own opinion, that he declared 
himself ready to stake his reputation 
against that of any painter in Eng- 
land. When, however, he first ex- 
hibited in London (1787), his vanity 
received a salutary check, and feel- 
ing the necessity of study he entered 
the Eoyal Academy, The very next 
year he achieved a success with his 
portrait of Miss Farren, the actress, 
afterwards Countess of Derby, and 
followed it up with portraits of the 
Queen and the Princess Amelia. 
In 1791, through the influence of 
George HI, with whom he was a 
great favourite, Lawrence was ad- 
mitted to the Koyal Academy as supple- 
mentary A.E.A., although under the re- 
quired age, and the next year he became 
painter in ordinary to his majesty. In 1794 
he was elected E.A. To these years belong 
his portraits of J. J. Angerstein and Benja- 
min West, the full length of Mrs. Siddons,

Stockholm when 
the Swedes took 
Prague in 1648; 
passed from col- 
lection of Queen 
Christina, through 
several hands, to

the Pious, son of 
the Regent Due 
d'Orleans, insti- 
gated by his father 
confessor, Abbe de 
Saint Genevieve, 

cut out the head of the Leda and otherwise 
mutilated it. The fragments fell into the 
hands of Charles Coypel, the court-painter, 
and either he or a painter named Deslyen 
repaired it and repainted the head. At 
Coypel's sale it was bought by Pasquier for 
16,050 livres, and at his sale (1755) it was 
bought for Frederick the Great for 21,060 
livres. In 1806 the French took it from the 
Palace of Sansouci to Paris, where Prud'hou 
painted in a new head ; it was returned in 
1814, and has been in the Berlin Museum 
since 1830. Lately restored by Schlesinger,

LELY, Sir PETER, bom at Soest in

London, Nov. 30, 
1680. Real name 
Peter Tan der 
Faes. Flemish 
school ; portrait 
painter, pupil of 
Pieter de Greb- 
ber in Haarlem, 
but on coming 
to England with 
William of Orange, in 1643, he so closely 
studied the manner of Tan Dyck, who had 
jusfc died, that his earlier portraits often 
approach the great master's style. For 
thirty years he was the most popular por- 
trait painter in England, and amassed a 
large fortune ; nominated court-painter and 
knighted by Charles H. His portraits are 
of elegant conception, clear and warm col- 
ouring ; hands especially finely drawn. In 
his later period he degenerated ; his treat- 
ment grew superficial, his colouring cold 
and heavy, the female portraits mannered, 
with the languishing expression of the 
eyes affected by the ladies of the time. 
Works: Dukes of Albemarle and Buck- 
ingham ; Duchess of Cleveland, May Da-

LESLIE, CHARLES ROBERT, born in 
Clerkenwell, Lon- 
don, Oct. 11, 1794, 
died in London, 
May 5, 1859. His 
father, a watch- 
maker of Philadel- 
phia, returned to 
America in 1800, 
^ and on his death 
\ (1804) Charles was 
' apprenticed to a 
bookseller ; but in a few years he was en- 
abled to go to London, where he became a 
student at the Royal Academy (1813). Al- 
though his first pictures were meritorious, 
it was not until his return from the Conti- 
nent in 1817 that he displayed his special 
talent, in the picture of Slender and Anne 
Page. Two years later he exhibited his Sir 
Roger de Coverley (Marquis of Lansdowne), 
which left him without a rival in this class 
of subjects. He became an A.R.A. in 1821, 
and R.A. in 1826. In 1833 he accepted the 
professorship of drawing at West Point, but 
held the position only a few months. On 
his return to England the same year he 
painted several pictures from the great po- 
ets, and two historical pieces for the Queen, 
her Coronation (1838), and the Baptism of 
the Princess Royal. From 1847 to 1852 he 
was professor of painting at the Royal Acad- 
emy. His somewhat formal and theatrical 
compositions are enlivened by a vein of

him expressed attitude and motion of living 
figures tinder draperies as he did. He was 
among the first to introduce the element 
of sensuous beauty into sacred pictures, by 
taking the prettiest faces around Mm as 
models for his madonnas. His sacred sub- 
jects, too, are often treated in a realistic style 
that detracts from their dignity, saints and 
even angels being painted in the Florentine 
costume of the time, and low, vulgar types

truthful pictures. Was an imitator of Hob-

of the Florentines. In 1333 Pietro painted 
a Madonna above the portal of the Siena 
Duomo, which Luca di Thome afterwards

the front of the Hospital of Siena which is I Florentine school ; a Camaldolensian monk 
highly eulogized by Vasari, who says it was in Florence. His style as a painter is that 
in the manner of Giotto. In 1340 Pietro 
finished for S. Francesco of Pistoja a picture 
supposed to be that now in the Uffizi, Flor- 
ence, and two years later painted the Na- 
tivity of the Virgin, in the Sacristy of the 
Duomo, Siena. His altarpiece in the parish 
church of Arezzo, which is in better preser- 
vation though inferior to Giotto, is a more 
powerful and able work, both in conception 
and execution, than any produced by his 
pupils. Other remarkable works by Pietro 
are the frescos of the Crucifixion, the Pas- 
sion, and St. Francis receiving the Stigmata, 
in the lower church of S. Francesco at As- 
sisi, assigned by Vasari to Pietro Cavallini, 
and those in the Campo Santo, Pisa, repre-

shows more religious sentiment than his 
master, as a draughtsman he is no better. 
In general tone his work is soft and trans- 
parent like that of a miniature painter, and 
his flesh tints are carefully fused. The only 
picture bearing his name is a Coronation of 
the Virgin, dated 1413, formerly in the ab- 
bey of his order at Ceretto, and now in the 
Ufnzi, Florence. Its peculiarities enable us

In 1416, with the aid of his brother Jacopo, 
Lorenzo decorated the oratory of S. Giovanni 
Battista, Urbino, with a Crucifixion, and in- 
cidents in the Baptist's life. The figures in 
these frescos are exaggerated in action, lean 
to excess, and ill drawn interesting chiefly 
as a link in Umbrian art between the works 
of Ottaviano Nelli and Gentile da Fabriano.

LOTTI 



ranked among the best masters ; thought 
by some to be a pupil of Pietro Liberi ; in- 
fluenced by the works of Caravaggio, al- 
though his colouring is often sombre. He 
was much employed for the Emperor Leo- 
pold II., and in Italy for churches and pri- 
vate collections. "Works : Mercury Seat-

LOTTO, LORENZO, born at Bergamo 
or Treviso (?) about 1480, died at Loreto 
about 1554. Venetian school; sometimes 
called II Bergamasco, from his long resi- 
dence in Bergamo. Went early to Yenice, 
where, according to Vasari, he was Pal-j 




ma's friend and assistant, and studied the 
works of Giovanni Bellini, and later those of 

Giorgione. 
He was one 
of the best of 
the second- 
rate artists of 
his time. The 
oldest extant 
picture by 
him, a J/a- 
donna with 
St. Onofrius, 
Palazzo Bor- 
ghese, Rome, is dated 1508, the date 1500 
of the S. Jerome in the Desert, Louvre, be- 
ing an obvious duplicate. A larger pro- 
duction of 1508 is the Madonna of Si Dom- 
inick, S. Domenico, Recanati, in which the 
drawing is precise and minute, the perspec- 
tive correct, and the colours clear and pure. 
Of similar characteristics and of about the 
same time are: Madonna and Saints, S. 
Cristina, near Treviso ; Marriage of St. 
Catherine, Munich Gallery ; and Madonna 
and Peter Martyr, Naples Museum. His 
pictures after this period show a bolder 
approach to the manner of Palma and of 
Giorgione, e.g.: Madonna and SS. Anthony 
and Basil (1506), Duomo, Asolo ; St. Jerome, 
Louvre ; Madonna and Four Saints, Bridge- 
water Collection ; and the Three Ages, Pa- 
lazzo Pitti, Florence. Other examples are 
the Entombment (1512), S. Floriano, Jesi ; 
Transfiguration, Collegiata, Castelnuovo ; 
Death of Peter Martyr, S. Pietro Martire, 
Alzano ; Family Group, Portraits of Agos- 
tino and Niccol6 della Torre (1515), Na- 
tional Gallery, London ; Throned Madonna 
(1516), S. Bartolommeo, Bergamo ; Ma- 
donna (1521), S. Bernardino, Bergamo ;

came so much under influence of Titian 
that some of his pictures, especially por- 
traits, have been ascribed to that master. 
About 1548 his powers began to wane, and 
he then resolved to retire to Loreto. His 
pictures at San Giacomo dell' Orto, Venice 
(1546), at S. M. deUa Pace, and in the Gov- 
ernor's Palace, Ancona, give sad evidences 
of his de- t ff

1475 and 1480, 
died in Milan, af- 
ter 1533. Lom- 
bard-Milanese 
school ; called by 

kVasari, del Lupi- 
no. Pupil of Ci- 
r^ * yerchio and of 
'' Leonardo da Vin- 

ci, whose manner 
he imitated so closely that many of his pict- 
ures pass for the work of his master. His 
faces wear the Leonardesque smile, though 
it has not the same depth of meaning, and 
his manner of painting is similar to that of 
Leonardo, though it does not reach that al- 
most superhuman degree of finish which 
distinguishes the Gioconda among pictures. 
A Piet& in S. M. della Passione, Milan, is an 
early painting by Luini, but his most im- 
portant works in that city are the frescos in 
the Monastero Maggiore, among which the 
Martyrdom of St Catherine is justly cele- 
brated for composition and expression ; the 




71 fragments of frescos in the Brera, in- 
cluding the famous St. Catherine borne by 
Angels, the Madonna with SS. Anthony and 
Barbara (1521), the Marriage of the Virgin, 
i a Madonna with St. Elizabeth, the Birth of 
I Adonis, and the Flagellation, Anibrosian 
, Library. Other important frescos by Luini 
! are those in the Church of the Pilgrims at 
j Saronno, Marriage of the Virgin, Christ 
I among the Doctors, Adoration of the Magi, 
Presentation in the Temple (1525), Sibyls, 
Evangelists, and Fathers of the Church ; 
and those in S. M. degli Angeli, Lugano 
a colossal Passion over the entrance to the 
Choir, a fresco lunette of the Madonna with 
the Infant St. John, and a Last Supper. 
Among Luini's easel pictures are : large 
altar-piece, Church at Legnano ; several 
small easel pictures, Ambrosian Library, 
Milan ; Madonna, Brera, Milan ; Adoration 
of Shepherds, Adoration of Magi, etc., Du- 
omo, Como ; Salome, Madonna and St. John, 
Uffizi, Florence ; Modesty and Vanity, Pa- 
lazzo Sciarra, Eome ; Virgin and Infant 
Jesus, Naples Museum; Christ among the 
Doctors, National Gallery, London ; Salome,

the best painters of their time. Pictures

it was discovered that the face of the Virgin 
had been reduced in size by some restorer 
in the 17th century, who had painted a 
white cloth enveloping the head. It is be- 
lieved to be the picture painted in 1485 for

the largest altarpiece ever painted, in its

carried to the church in a festive procession 
of people and trumpeters. la this picture

see in the given Byzantine madonnas ; the 
Child is not lifeless, and the adoring angels 
are devotional There is also a decided

MADONNA 



the Child in her arms, standing on clouds, j 
within a glory of cherubim, between two I 
green curtains which are looped back at j 
the sides ; at the left, St. Sixtus (Pope Six- 
tus IL), in a white tunic and gold-coloured 
pallium turned back with purple, kneels in 
supplication ; on the right, St. Barbara, 
kneeling and looking downwards ; behind 
her is her attribute, the tower; below, a 
balustrade, upon which two angels lean, 
both looking upwards; at left, on 
the balustrade, is the tiara of St. 
Sixtus. A rare example of a pict- 
ure of Baphael's later time, painted 
entirely by his own hand. No study 
known to exist. Every form of eu- 
logy has been exhausted on this 
incomparable masterpiece. The Ma- 
donna's beauty is a human beauty, 
but the Child's is something more 
the divine nature shines through 
the mortal frame and illumines it. 
Here Kaphael's work is above all 
other work. Painted in Borne in 
1518 for the Church of the Monas- 
tery of S. Sisto, Piacenza, where 
Vasari saw it ; in 1754 the monks 
sold it for 40,000 Koman crowns to 
Augustus EL, Elector of Saxony 
and King of Poland, who presented 
to the monastery an old copy by 
Paris Nogari, which still hangs in 
the place of the original. Eestored

MANSUETI, GIOVANNI, end of 15th 
and beginning of 16th century. Venetian 
school ; pupil of the Bellini in Venice. 
There are extant at least a dozen of his 
pictures, in several of which he nearly ap- 
proaches the excellence of Carpaccio. In 
his Miracle of the Gross (1493), Venice 
Academy, the short, square, rigid, and mo- 
tionless figures are mingled in the manners 
of Gentile Bellini and Carpaccio. In the 
same gallery are St. Mark curing Amanus 
the Cobbler ; St. Mark preaching in Alexan- 
dria, in which he closely approaches Car- 
paccio, and Glory of St. Sebastian (1500). 
Mansueti's latest period may be studied in 
a St. Jerome, and a Pietu, in the Bergamo 
Gallery, and in a Christ in the Temple, 
Uffizi, Florence. Charles Blanc places Mau- 
sueti among the best painters of Gentile 
Bellini's school. C. & C., N. Italy, i. 219 ;

MANTEGNA, ANDREA, born near Pa-

died in Mantua, 
Sept. 13, 150<>. 
Paduan school ; 
history painter, 
pupil of Squarci- 
one, who adopt- 
ed him in 1441 ; 
worked at first 
like the realists 
Zoppo and Schi- 
avone, as his Ecce Homo, in the Communal 
Gallery, Padua, shows, but afterwards came 
so much under influence of the Florentine 
school, which worked at Padua through Do- 
natello and Uccello, and of the Venetian, 
through Jacopo Bellini, whose daughter 
Niccolosia became his wife, that Squarcioue 
quarrelled with him. A fresco of SS. Ber- 
nardino and Anthony, over the high portal 
of his Basilica at Padua (1448), is his earli- 




190 



MANTOVANO 



est extant work, but the altarpiece of St. | 
Luke and Saints (1454), at the Brera, Milan, 
painted for S. Giustina at Padua, is- the 
first which displays the master's character- 
is fcics. It and the St. Euphemia, in the 
Museum at Naples, are the only representa- 
tives of his early Paduan period. After 
1448 Mantegna began to paint a continu- 
ation of the Life of St. James, begun by 
Pizzolo, in the Church of the Eremitani, 
Padua. The Saint exorcising the Devils, 
and Called from his Nets were probably 
designed and partly executed by Mantegna, 
but those of James Baptizing, and on his 
Trial, as well as the rest of the chapel, are 
altogether his work. They show a close 
study of the antique, as well as minute ob- 
servation of common nature, and are char- 
acterized by an excessive display of scien- 
tific knowledge. The human form, regarded 
as a geometrical unit, is treated architectu- 
rally, and perspective is carried so far by the 
precipitation of the lines that the inner parts 
of all the figures, excepting those on the 
very edge of the foreground, are concealed. 
In no other painter's works are to be found 
so strange a mixture of classic feeling, real- 
ism, and science, combined with rare dra- 
matic power and intensity of life, as in those 
of Mantegna ; whose style may be studied 
to advantage, not only in his paintings, but 
in the few precious engravings which he ex- 
ecuted on copper after 1468. About 1460 
Mantegna entered the service of Luigi Gon- 
zaga, Marquis of Mantua, but he did not 
take up his residence there until 1471. In 
1459 he painted the Madonna of San Zeno, 
Verona, and the Christ in the Garden, Bar- 



Marys (1474), Brera, and a Madonna (1485), 
in the collection of Sir Charles Eastlake, 
preceded the famous Triumph of Julius 
Caesar ; probably of the same period (1485?) 
is the Madonna with Angels, identified re- 
cently, in the Brera, Milan. Called to Eome 
in 1488 by Innocent VUL, Mantegna re- 
mained there two years, during which he 
painted some now destroyed frescos in the 
Chapel of the Vatican ; a Madonna, Uffizi ; 
Parnassus, Wisdom victorious over Vices, 
Louvre ; Man of Sorrows, Copenhagen. 
The Assumption, in the Trivulzi Gallery, Mi- 
lan, was painted in 1497, and the Madon- 
na della Vittoria, Louvre, about the same 
time. In the National Gallery, London, are 
the Triumph of Scipio, Summer and Au- 
tumn, Samson and Delilah, and a Madonna 
with Saints ; in the Historical Society, New 
York, a Crucifixion, and an Adoration of 
the Magi. The latter years of Mantegna's 
life at Mantua were full of trouble, on ac- 
count of the banishment of his son Fran- 
cesco and his greatly reduced circumstances. 
His tomb in the Church of S. Andrea is 
marked by an admirable portrait bust in 
bronze, perhaps the work of the great med- 
allist Sperandio. His second son, Fran- 
cesco (1479 after 1517), was the painter 
of a Noli Me Tangere, and a Eesurrection, 
in the National Gallery, London. Art Jour-

MARATTI (Maratta), CARLO, Cavaliere, 
born in Camerano, 
May 13, 1625, died 
in Rome, Dec. 15, 
1713. Roman 
school ; best and 
favourite pupil of 
Andrea Sacchi ; at 
first painted most- 
ly Madonnas, 
whence often sa- 
tirically called Car- 
luccio delle Ma- 
donne. Through Sacchi's influence he ob- 
tained a commission to paint, in S. Giovanni 
in Laterano, Constantine destroying the 
Idols, which was highly prized. From this 
time he was very successful, and he became 
one of the most popular painters in Rome, 
executing many works for churchew and 
public buildings. Among his largent and 
most important works was the decoration 
of the cupola of the church of Urbino, de- 
stroyed by the earthquake of 1782. Under 
Innocent XIC. Maratti was superintendent 
of the paintings in the Vatican, and Clem- 
ent XL conferred on him the Order of 
Christ and commissioned him to restore 
the frescos of Raphael. To this he owos 
much of his fame, but his restorations have 
been severely criticised. He was Prince of 
the Academy of St. Luke at the time of his 
death. Maratti's works are characterized 
rather by absence of defects than by any

MARRIAGE, SPANISH (Le mariage es- 
pagnol or La Vicaria), Mariano Fortuny, 
Mme. de Cassin, Paris. Sometimes called ! 



Mariage dans la vicaria de Madrid, although 
it does not represent the vicaria of Madrid 
nor any existing sacristy, the painter having 
chosen the material for his background from 
several churches, especially from the Cathe- 
dral of Granada and from a church in Rome. 
Represents a wedding party gathered to 
sign the marriage contract in a large sac- 
risty, the walls of which are hung with 
Cordovan leather, and which is separated 
from the church by an open grille in the 
rococo style. Lamps are suspended from 
the ceiling, and pictures and Venetian mir- 
rors adorn the walls, against which stand 
heavy oaken benches and a book-case filled 
with missals and antiphonaries. The groom 
is about to afilx his signature to the con- 
tract in the place pointed out by the scriv- 
ener. A priest stands beside the table, and 
two others are seated, writing. The two 
principal women, the bride and her mother, 
are portraits of Mile. Isabel de Madrazo, the 
painter's sister, and of Mme. Fortuny. An- 
other of the ladies is said to be a portrait of 
the Duchess Colonna ; Meissonier is said to 
bave posed for the officer with the sabre, 
and Henri Regnault for another of the at- 
tendant gentlemen. Begun in Rome, fin-

MASACCIO, TOMMASO, bom at Castel 
San Giovanni 
di Valdarno, 
Dec. 21, 1401, 
died in Rome 
(?) about 1428. 
Florentine 
school; real 
name Tomma- 
so di Giovanni 
di Simone Gui- 
di, but called 
Masaccio (Careless Thomas) from his in- 
difference to appearance ; perhaps studied 
under Masolino da Panicale. In 1421 he 
was enrolled in the guild of the Speziali 
(apothecaries) in Florence, and in 1422 in 
that of the painters. Masaccio is to the 
15th century what Giotto is to the 14th 
the founder of a new school, the opener of 
a new era in painting, and the painter of 
frescos which were studied by all the great 
artists who came after him as models of 
style, composition, treatment of drapery, 
and truth to nature. Before 1421 (?) he 
decorated a chapel in S. Clemente, Rome, 
with frescos from the life of St. Catherine. 
The next eight years were spent in painting 
frescos in the Brancacci Chapel in the Car- 
mine, Florence, which are the chief exam- 
ples of his style and school. The entire 
series was formerly attributed to him ; but 
modern research has shown that these fres- 
cos were begun by Masaccio, and continued 




213 



MASO 



and completed by Filippino Lippi, and tha 
of them Masaccio painted nine only, name- 
ly : Expulsion from Eden, St. Peter healin; 
Tabitha and curing the Cripple at the Gat 
of the Temple ; Seeking of the Tribut 
Money and its payment by St. Peter ; Th 
Expulsion ; Sermon of St. Peter (?); St Pe 
ter Baptizing ; Distribution of Alms ; SS 
Peter and John curing the Sick ; Besurrec 
tion of the Child and St. Peter in Cathedra 
partly executed by Filippino Lippi. Thi 
takes from Masaccio two of the finest work, 
in the chapel the Crucifixion of St. Peter 
and the Arraignment of SS. Peter and Pau 
before the Proconsul both painted by Filip 
pino Lippi, and therefore to some exten 
diminishes his glory. It, however, leaves 
him enough to entitle him to be considered 
the greatest painter of his time, and to be 
called the father of modern art, through 
careful study of the human form, and inves- 
tigation of the laws of light and shade which 
govern relief, as well as of the management 
of drapery in broad masses ; he rescued 
painting from medisevalism, and gave an im- 
pulse which finally brought the art to that 
perfection which it afterwards attained in 
the hands of EaphaeL Each event repre- 
sented by Masaccio is like a scene upon the 
stage where the actors are grouped with due 
regard to effect. Many of the heads are 
portraits, and all the figures are studied 
from lif e in a naturalistic spirit, which faith- 
fully renders the costumes worn by the men 
and women of the time. Even Raphael did 
not disdain to take Masaecio's noble group 
of Adam and Eve driven from Paradise as 
a model when he treated the same subject 
in the Vatican. The few other extant works 
of Masaccio are : Fragment of a Procession, 
cloister of the Carmine ; The Trinity be- 
tween the Virgin and Si John the Evangel- 
ist, with two donors, S. M. Novella (much 
injured) ; Conception, Florence Academy ; 
and portrait of himself (?), perhaps by Filip- 
pino Lippi, Uffizi ; Adoration of the Magi, 
Diptych with Martyrdom of SS. Peter and 
John the Baptist, Berlin Museum.^C. &

MASO. See Giottino. 

MASOLINO DA PANICALE, born at 
Panicale in 1383, died in Florence in Oct. 
(buried, 18th), 1440. Florentine school; 
real name Tornmaso di Cristofano di Fino ; 
pupil of Gherardo da Stamina, and probably 
master of Masaccio. Vasari confounds him 
with Maso di Cristoforo Braccii, and his ac- 
count is therefore untrustworthy. Masolino 
had no hand in the famous frescos of the 
Brancacci Chapel. He was admitted into 
the guild of the Physicians and Apotheca- 
ries in Florence in 1423, and shortly after- 
wards entered the service of Pippo Spani, 
Obergespann of Temeswar, Hungary. Af- 
ter Spani's death (1427) he returned to Italy, 
and executed, about 1428, for Cardinal Cas- 
tiglione, a series of frescos in the Church 
of Castiglione di Olona and in the adjoining 
baptistery. These, which were unknown to 
Vasari, were lately rescued from whitewash 
and are signed with his name. Those iu 
the choir represent events in the lives of the 
Virgin, and of SS. Lawrence and Stephen, to 
whom the church is dedicated. With no 
ittle religious sentiment, which is at times 
so expressed as to recall Fra Angelico, with 
a conscientious care for details of form and 
composition and a system of architectural 
and figure arrangement which has no little 
analogy with that of his great pupil, Masac- 
io, Masolino elaborated detail at the expense 
>f breadth, and made solitary figures unduly 
orominent. His compositions are monoto- 
nous, both on account of lack of variety in 
irrangement and the absence of contrast in 
ight and shade. His heads are character- 
stic, and his extremities carefully studied 
rom nature. In the frescos of the baptis- 
ery at Castiglione, which represent scenes 
n the life of St. John, the faces are excellent 
nd the action is weak. Considerable bold- 



214- 



MASON 



ness is shown in the use of perspective, which 
Masolino, like other painters of his time, 
had learned to apply to painting, tbanks to 
the scientific discoveries of Brunelleschi. 
According to the annotates of Yasari, the 
baptistery frescos were painted in 1435, but 
C. & C. give the date of 1428 as covering 
these as well as those in the Collegiate 
Church. C. C., Italy, i. 499 ; Yasari, ed.

Called also Miracle of Bolsena. Li 1263, 
under Urban IV., a priest who doubted the 
reality of transubstantiation is said to have 
seen blood flow from the wafer, when cele- 
brating mass in S. Cristina, Bolsena. This 
gave rise to the feast of Corpus Christi, in- 
stituted A.D. 1310. The priest is saying mass 
in the presence of Urban IV. (portrait of

pope are four cardinals, and below them five 
of the Swiss guard ; on the left are deacons 
and acolytes, and below them people won-

feebleness in every respect, especially in his 
later pictures. Free of Antwerp guild in

MASSYS, QUINTEN, bom in Antwerp 
before 1460, 
died there be- 
tween July 13 
and Sept. 16, 
1530. Flemish 
school ; history, 
genre, and por- 
trait painter, per- 
haps pupil of 
Dierick Bouts. / 
The current story " 
of his having begun life as a blacksmith, and 
turned to art in order to win a painter 's 
daughter for his wife, is not well authenti- 
cated. What we know is, that he married 
about 1480, and again in 1508-9 ; that he 
entered the painters' guild at Antwerp in 
1491, lived there mostly, and perhaps at 
Louvain temporarily ; and that his friends 
were Egidius, Erasmus, and Dttrer. While 
the painters of the Van Eyck school had for 
the most part painted figures of small size, 
Massys painted them of life-size, showing 
in his treatment of religious subjects an 
intense and sometimes exaggerated senti- 
ment. His flesh tones are clear, his dra- 
peries harmonious in colour, and his execu- 
tion is careful and elaborate. His style, 
which marks the close of the early Flemish 
school and inaugurates a new period, is dis- 
tinguished by more independence of thought 
and greater artistic freedom than that of 
any previous painter in the Low Countries, 
excepting the Van Eycks. Works : Trip-

GIN, flourished in Cologne first half of 16th 
century, died there, 1556. German school ; 
painter of many altarpieces and portraits, 
identified by some writers with Jan Joest, 
though possibly his pupil, as he worked long 
after the death of that master, whose style 
is traceable in his early pictures. His later 
works resemble those of Quinten Massys and 
Mabuse so closely that they pass in several 
collections under those two masters' names, 
while many of his portraits have been as- 
cribed to Holbein- Of late, attempts have 
been made to identify this master with Jan 
Scorel, which seem to have much in their 
favor, but have called forth a lively con- 
troversy by opponents. Works : Death of 
Virgin, Cologne Museum (1515) ; do., SS. 
George and Nicasius, St. Christina, ChriBt ou 
:he Cross, Repose in Egypt, Old Piimkothek, 
Munich; Scenes from Life of Christ (151(>),

MASTER OF FBANKFOBT, flourished 
between 1500 and 1520. German school; 
his works have been erroneously attributed 
to Konrad Fyol. Works: Adoration of

del Gallery, Frankfort ; Holy Family, Frank- 
fort Museum ; Triptych with Madonna and 
St. Ann, Berlin Museum. Meyer, Museen,

MASTEB OF UESBOBN, flourished 
about middle of 15th century. German 
school ; he is known only through a great 
altarpiece, painted about 1465 and repre- 
senting the life and passion of Christ ; for- 
merly at the Abbey of Liesborn, near Mto- 
ster. In the two fragments now at the 
National Gallery, London, the heads are 
peaceful in expression and devout in feel- 
ing. The colouring is clear and agreeable, 
but as regards truth to nature these pict- 
ures are very inferior to those of contem- 
porary Netherlandish painters. "Works : 
Half-length Figures of Six Saints, Annunci- 
ation, Presentation, National Gallery, Lon- 
don. Forster, Denkmale, i. 5 ; Kugler

MASTEB OF LYVEBSBEBG PASSION, 
second half of 15th century. German school ; 
this artist, named after his masterpiece once 
in possession of Mr. Lyversberg, of Cologne, 
whose works were formerly attributed to the 
engraver Israel van Meckenen, was the first 
to bring into prominence the graft of Flem- 
ish realism upon the idealism of the old 
school of Cologne. Works : Eight Scenes 
from Life of Mary, Twelve Apostles, Three 
do. (2), Old Pinakothek, Munich; Five 
Scenes in Life of Mary, Germanic Museum, 
Nuremberg; Lyuersberg Passion, Cologne

MASTEB OF SIGMABINGEN, first half 
of 16th century. German school ; contem- 
porary of Martin Schaflher, and much his 
inferior. Works : Altarpiece with Scenes 
from Life of Mary, Hohenzollern Museum, 
Sigmaringen ; other works in Carlsruhe and 
Stuttgart. W. & W., ii. 454. 

MASTEB OF THOMAS ALTAR, flour- 
ished in Cologne, end of 15th and begin- 
ning of 16th century. German school ; 
though influenced by the contemporaneous 
art of Upper Germany, this master, former- 
ly identified with Lucas van Leyden, and 
later with Christoph, an earlier painter at 
Cologne, was an artist of strong individual- 
ity. Despite the meagre forms and awk- 
ward motions of his mannered figures, they 
are not devoid of a certain grace and ex- 
pression. Works : Bartholomew Altar, Old 
Pinakothek, Munich ; Thomas Altar (1501), 
Crucifixion, Cologne Museum ; Two Altar 
Wings with Saints, Mentz Gallery ; do., 
National Gallery, London ; Descent from 
the Cross, Louvre (attributed to Quinten

MATTED DI GIOVANNI di Bartolo, 
born about 1435, died in 1495. Sienese 
school ; sometimes called Matteo da Siena. 
Though far behind the Florentines, he was 
the best Sienese painter of his time, and 
may be said to have adopted the manner of 
Sano di Pietro, and improved it by modern- 
izing it. His oldest authentic picture, Vir- 
gin enthroned with Angels (1470), is in the 
Siena Academy ; his masterpiece, the Ma- 
donna della Neve (Madonna of the Snow), 
dated 1477, in S. M. della Neve, Siena ; his 
St. Barbara (1479), in S. Domenico, Siena ; 
Madonna with Saints, in a chapel of same 
church ; Adoration of the Virgin, Siena 
Academy ; and his Madonnas in the Palazzo 
Pubblico and Palazzo Tolomei, Siena, and 
in the Duomo, Pienza, are also favourable 
examples. He was less successful in scenes 
requiring action, as in his Massacres of the 
Innocents, which are melodramatic and full 
of exaggerated sentiment pushed to the 
verge of grimace. One of them (1482) is 
in S. Agostino of Siena, another (1491) in 
S. M. de' Servi of Siena, and a third in the 
Naples Museum. Matteo designed three 
subjects for the pavement of the Cathedral, 
Siena, namely : the Samian Sibyl, the De- 
liverance of Bethulia, and the Massacre of 
the Innocents. In the National Gallery, 
London, are an Ecce Homo and an As- 
sumption.--^. & C., Italy, iii 81 ; Vasari,

MEDICI, MARIA DE', HESTOET OF, 
Rubens, Louvre, Paris ; series of twenty-one 
pictures, canvas. Maria de' Medici (1573- 
1632), daughter of Francis L of Tuscany 
and of the Archduchess Joanna of Austria, 
and wife of Henri IV. of France, having re- 
turned to Paiis after her reconciliation with 
her son Louis STEI., employed Rubens to 
paint a series of decorative pictures for the 
grand gallery (now destroyed) of her Pal- 
ace of the Luxembourg. Rubens went to 
France in 1621, made the sketches in Paris, 
executed the pictures in Antwerp with the 
aid of his scholars, and delivered them in 
1625. He also painted three portraits for 
the gallery : Maria de' Medici as Bellona, 
her Father Francis L, and her Mother Jo- 
anna; all of which, together with the se- 
ries, were removed to the Louvre in 1779. 
Eighteen of the original sketches, in gri- 
saille, are in the Munich Gallery.

nor authenticated works besides the trip- 
tych in the Church of St Bavon at Ghent, 
representing the Crucifixion, the Baising of 
the Brazen Serpent, and Moses striking the 
Rock. These compositions are remarkable 
for the number of figures, which, however, 
are not skilfully distributed, and are very 
meagre. The many pictures in various pub- 
lic galleries, attributed to this painter, are 
not verified. Among them are : Adoration 
of Magi, Visitation of Virgin, Berlin Muse-

MELOZZO DA FORLI, born at Forli, 
June 6, 1438, died there, Nov. 8, 1494. 



Umbrian school ; contemporary of Manteg- 
na, whose influence he may have felt, but 
owed his advancement to Piero della Fran- 
cesca, of whom he was perhaps a pupil. 
He had, however, a higher sense of beauty 
find of dramatic life, and his draperies are 
richer and more ample than those of Piero, 
who excelled him in colour. Melozzo was 
called to Rome by Sixtus IV., and painted 
(1475-80) in fresco, in the Vatican Library, 
an Audience of Sixtus IV., now transferred 
to canvas and in the Vatican Gallery, which 
is remarkable for fine characteristic por- 
traiture, rich architectural background, and 
harmonious colour. Part of another fresco, 
Christ among Angels, formerly in SS. Apos- 
toli, Rome, is now on the staircase of the 
Quirinal ; and there are seven fragments of 
Angels playing and singing, together with 
four heads of Apostles, in the sacristy of St. 
Peter's. His works are marked by masterly 
drawing, bold foreshortening, and good per- 
spective. Many of the pictures in galleries, 
attributed to him, are of doubtful authen- 
ticity. Among those which may be consid- 
ered genuine, as they are admirable, are the 
allegorical representations of the Arts and 
Sciences, which probably originally deco- 
rated the library in the Ducal Palace, Ur- 
bino. Of this series, one is in the Berlin 
Museum ; two, Rhetoric and Music, in the 
National Gallery, London ; and one, Duke 
Frederic with his son Guidobaldo and Vit- 
torio da Feltre his Tutor, at Windsor. C.

MELZI, FRANCESCO, born in Milan in 
1492, died after 1568. Lombard school ; 
pupil of Leonardo da Vinci, and one of his 
most devoted disciples ; an amateur of a 
rich and noble family. Accompanied his 
master to France, and was made heir of his 
designs and manuscripts. His pictures are 
so like Da Vinci's in manner as to be mis- 
taken for them. A Vertumnus and Pomona, 
Berlin Museum, formerly attributed to Leo-

ish school ; his- 
tory painter,

According to a popular legend, Memling 
was admitted as a sick soldier into the Hos- 
pital of St. John, Bruges, after the battle of 
Nancy, and in gratitude for the care be- 
stowed upon him painted the celebrated 
wooden shrine of St. Ursula, before Oct. 29, 
1489, with miniatures representing six scenes 
from the legend of the saint, and other 
subjects, still preserved in the hospital.

MEMMI, UPPO, died in 1356. Sienese 
school ; an artist of the same school as his 
greater brother-in-law, Simone di Martino, 
with whom he had a common workshop in 
Siena. Though at times content to laboi 
on the mechanical part of Simone's altar- 
pieces, he frequently undertook separate 
commissions, the most important of which 
was the adornment of the Palazzo del Po- 
desta at S. Gimignano in 1317. The spirit 
and composition of this work much resem- 
bles that of Simone ; but it is remarkable 
for the minuteness of its finish, every hair 
and every ornamental detail being patiently 
worked out. Lippo also aided Simone in 
the painting of the Annunciation, now in 
the IJffizi, Florence. Other examples of his 
work are a Madonna with Saints, in the Pa- 
lazzo Pubblico, S. Gimignano ; a Madonna 
and Angels, in the Chapel of the Santissimo 
Corporate, at Orvieto ; the Beato Augustino, 
in S. Agostino, Siena ; a Madonna, in the 
Berlin Museum ; and a Resurrection, in the 
Dresden Gallery. C. & C., Italy, ii. 101 ; Va-

MENABOI, GIUSTO DI GIOVANNI, 
second half of 14th century ; dead in 1397. 
Florentine school ; pupil probably of Gio- 
vanni da Milano ; name in register of Flor- 
entine painters in 1387, but afterwards a 
resident of Padua. A Madonna Enthroned, 
dated 1363, is at Milan, and a Coronation 
of the Virgin, dated 1367, in the National 
Gallery, London. Frescos attributed to him 
are in the Baptistery, Padua, and an altar- 
piece in the adjoining chapel ; and other 
frescos in the Luca Belludi Chapel, Padua, 
and in the Rinuccini Chapel, S. Croce, Flor- 
ence. He was a feeble continuator of the 
style of Giotto, whose colouring is bright 



and well fused, but whose drawing, expres- 
sion, and choice of motives are dull and 
clumsy. C. & C., Italy, ii. 248 ; Kunstblatt 
(1838), No. 13 ; W. & W., i. 484. 

MENENDEZ, Don LUIS, born at Naples 
in 1716, died at Madrid in 1780. Spanish 
school ; history and fruit painter, son and 
pupil of Francisco Antonio Menendez (a 
successful miniature pointer, 1682-1745) ; 
then studied in Rome, and, visiting Naples, 
was appointed painter in ordinary to King 
Charles ; on his return to Madrid, Ferdinand 
VI. employed him to illuminate the choir- 
books of the royal chapel. His favourite 
subjects were bodegoiies, in the deline- 
ation of which he has rarely been excelled. 
Works : Holy Family, Madonna, thirty- 
nine Bodegones and Fruitpieces, Madrid 
Museum. Stirling, iii. 1219. 

MENESES OSORIO, FRANCISCO, bom 
at Seville about 1630, died there about 1705. 
Spanish school ; pupil of MuriJlo, his favour- 
ite assistant, and one of his best copyists ; 
painted the glory in the Marriage of St. 
Gathering which cost Murillo his life, and 
also the four lateral pictures. Some works 
ascribed to his master were probably exe- 
cuted by him. He was a member of the 
Academy of Seville from 1666 to 1673, and 
its Mayordomo in 1668-69. Works : Death 
of a Hermit, Last Judgment, Cadiz Muse- 
um ; Virgin appearing to St. Cayetano, 
Church of La Merced, Cadiz ; Institution

MENESTRATUS, painter, 1st century 
D. His pictures were ridiculed in an epi- 
gram in the Greek anthology by Lucillius, 
who says his Phaethon was only fit for the 
fire- and his Deucalion for the water. Brunn 
'ii. 310) thinks it doubtful whether bad trag- 
edies rather than pictures are not here re- 
? erred to.

MENGS, ANTON EAPHAEL, born at 
Aussig, Bohemia, May 12, 1728, died in 
Eome, June 29, 
1779. German 
school ; history 
and portrait 
painter, son 
and pupil of 
Ismael Mengs, 
a distinguished 
miniature and 
enamel paint- 
er, who early 
caused him to 
study the great masters in Dresden and 
afterwards in Eome, where the King of Po- 
land, Augustus HI., permitted him to con- 
tinue his studies in 1741-44, and again in 
1746-49 ; he was made court-painter at the 
age of twenty-three, and removed to Eome 
in 1751, stopping at Venice for five months. 
He was an eclectic who, living at a time of 
extreme degradation in art, excited great 
admiration by his skill in composition and 
his knowledge of technical processes, but, 
as he had little originality or warmth of 
feeling, his works have not stood the test 
of time. Cardinal Albani and Pope Clem- 
ent XIV. employed him to paint for them 
at Eome, and Charles m. of Spain called 
him to Madrid in 1761, where as court- 
painter he received a high salary. His 
writings on painting and painters contain 
many refined observations and valuable no- 
tices of remarkable pictures. Works: Ado-

ed the West Indies, painting for two years 
at Surinam (1699-1701) the native insects 
and plants. A former work on insect life, 
and one published as a result of this jour- 
ney, made her famous. Most of the origi- 
nal paintings for them are in the British 
Museum, and in the Academy of Sciences 
at St. Petersburg. In the Vienna Museum 
is a Basket with Flowers, and in the Basle 
Museum, Locust and Chafers. Her daugh-

1750, died in Si Petersburg in 1825. His- 
tory and portrait painter, pupil at Schwa- 
bisch Gmtlnd of Urban, and hi Mannheim 
of Brand, then worked in Speyer ; went to 
Holland, and thence, as a soldier, to the 
Cape of Good Hope, where he earned by 
portrait painting enough to buy himself 
off ; returned to Amsterdam ; went in 1775 
for one year to Italy, and then to Munich, 
where he copied especially after Mieris and 
Dou ; settled in 1778 at Augsburg, whence 
he went again to Amsterdam, then to Vi- 
enna, and, in 1786, to St. Petersburg.

thedral ; two genre scenes with portraits of

a tutor for his children and a painter to

METSU, GABRIEL, born in Leyden in 
1630, died in Amsterdam, buried Oct. 24, 




1667. Dutch school; genre and portrait 
painter, son of and probably first instructed 

by Jacob Metsu 
(a Fleming, who 
had settled in 
Holland); then 
pupil of, or at 
least influenced 
by, Gerard Dou, 
and afterwards 
by Rembrandt ; 
, ^, ., , , . entered the guild 
I '/ j J ' of Leyden in 
1648, but left his native place in 1650, 
and settled in Amsterdam, where he mar- 
ried in 1658, and took the freedom of that 
city in 1659. This distinguished master 
shows in his style the influence of Terburg 
and Dou; in refinement of drawing and' 
picturesque composition no painter of small 
subjects equalled him. In pictures of his 
earlier period a warm harmony of great 
clearness predominates ; in his later works 
the tone is cooler, finely balanced, occasion- 
ally somewhat spotty in effect. He painted 
chiefly scenes from the upper classes of so- 
ciety, yet he took pleasure in representing 
market scenes, huntsmen, cook-maids, and 
the like. He treated mythological and alle- 
gorical subjects exceptionally well. Works : 
Duet, Music Lesson, Drowsy Landlady, Na- 
tional Gallery, London ; Female Fruit Deal-

MICHELANGELO DI LODOVICO 
BUONAEROTI SI- 
HONE, born at the 
Castle of Caprese in 
Casentino, March 6, 
1475, died in Borne, 
Feb. 18, 1564. Flor- 
jentine school; be- 
Scame the pupil of 
Domenico Ghirlan- 
dajo, April 1, 1488, 
* and also studied at 
the Academy in the Gardens of St. Mark, 
where he attracted the notice of its founder, 
Lorenzo de' Medici, who gave him a home 
at the Medici Palace until his death (April 
8, 1492). By the advice of Politian he se- 
lected the Battle between Hercules and the 
Centaurs as the subject of his first bas re- 
lief, preserved in the Casa Buonarroti. Af- 
ter the death of Ms patron, he for a time 




returned to his father's house and devoted 
himself to anatomical studies, but feeling 
bound by ties of gratitude to the Medi- 
ci, he accepted the invitation of Piero de' 
Medici, and resided in his palace until 1494. 
His departure for Venice, shortly before Pi- 
ero's expulsion, closes the first period in his 
life, during which he probably painted a 
Deposition from the Cross, which has been 
attributed to Luca Signorelli and to Baccio 
Bandinelli, and a very fine unfinished Ma- 
donna with Angels, National Gtdlery, Lon- 
don. In the autumn of 1494 Michelangelo 
came from Venice to Bologna, where he 
spent a year in the house of Gian Francesco 
Aldrovandi, working little, and impatient to 
return to Florence. Having sculptured an 
angel for the altar shrine of St. Dominick, he 
returned to his native city before July 15, 
1495. As this notice of Michelangelo relates 
only to his work as a painter, his sculpture 
is only casually referred to. Early in 1496 
he went to Borne and remained there four 
years, during which time he sculptured the 
famous Pietu. at St. Peter's. At Florence, 
before 1504, he painted for Angelo Doni a 
Holy Family, now in the Tribune of the 
Uffizi, one of the least interesting of all cele- 
brated pictures. In October of the same 
year he began a cartoon of Soldiers sum- 
moned to Battle while bathing in the Arno 
near Pisa, intended for a fresco which was 
to have been painted in the Great Hall of 
the Palazzo Vecchio. It was finished in 
Aug., 1505 or 1506, and hung in the hall 
side by side with the rival work of Leonardo 
da Vinci, admired by all and studied by 
young artists until its intentional or acci- 
dental destruction during a popular tumult 
about 1512, though there are reasons for 
thinking that it survived a few years longer. 
In 1505 Michelangelo entered the service of 
Pope Julius H., and from early in that year 
until May, 1506, when he spent three months 
at Florence, he was either employed at Borne 
in designing the Pope's monument or at 
Carrara in superintending the extraction 
and shipment of marbles to be used in -its 



MICHELANGELO 



construction. In May, 1506, after a quarrel 
with Julius, Michelangelo fled from Kome 
to Florence. A reconciliation was effected 
between them in August, at Bologna, where 
the artist remained, to cast the Pope's statue 
in bronze, until March, 1508, when he was 
again at Florence for a short time, until his 
forced return to Borne to paint the ceiling 
of the Sistine Chapel. This greatest of his 
works was begun in May, 1508, and the first 
unsatisfactory experiment of painting with 
Granacci, and other assistants, in September 
of that year. Their work having been de- 
stroyed, the great artist grappled with his 
herculean task single-handed. On All Saints' 
Day, 1509, when the ceiling had been half 
completed, the chapel was thrown open to 
the public. Satisfied with the effect, Pope 
Julius then allowed the scaffolding to be 
replaced and Michelangelo to resume his 
labours, which he probably completed in 
1512, although the chapel was not reopened 
until after March, 1513, when the Pope died. 
The vaulted ceiling is divided into compart- 
ments containing scenes from the Book of 
Genesis. Sublime figures of Sibyls and 
Prophets are painted in the pendentives, 
and subjects taken from the Old Testament 
in the lunettes. All these are bound togeth- 
er by a simulated architectural framework, 
vivified by figures representing the genii 
of architecture. The theme of the artist is 
man and his redemption ; the actors in the 
great drama are Adam and his progeny ; the 
assisting chorus, those sublime figures of 
Sibyls and Prophets in which Michelangelo 
displays his unrivalled powers of conception, 
imagination, design, and drawing. Could 
we also add to these power as a colourist, 
we should call him the greatest of painters ; 
but this we cannot do, because colour was 
to him an, in itself, unimportant means for 
the representation of form, upon which his 
essentially plastic genius concentrated itself. 
In the Holy Family, at the Uffizi, his one 
certainly authentic oil picture, the colour is 
cold^nd inharmonious, while in his frescos 
it is of secondary importance. Before the 



death of Pope Clement YE. (1534) Michel- 
angelo had made designs for the fresco of 
the Last Judgment, in the Sistine Chapel, 
and in September of that year it was begun, 
at the bidding of Paul ILL, and finished in 
1541. While the Last Judgment shows no 
sign of diminished power, the frescos of the 
Conversion of St. Paul, and the Crucifixion 
of St. Peter, in the Pauline Chapel (about 
1550), exhibit a marked decline. When Leo 
X. succeeded, in 1513, he appointed Michel- 
angelo architect of the projected, but never 
built, fa9ade of San Lorenzo, and caused 
him to waste three years in marble-buying 
and road-building at Carrara and Seravezza. 
In 1519 he was ordered by Leo to build the 
Chapel of the Medici, begun in 1520, to 
sculpture for it tombs of the famous mem-- 
bers of the family, partially completed in 
1525-29, and to construct the library of San 
Lorenzo, undertaken in 1523, when this 
Pope was succeeded by Clement VII. Six 
years later he besieged Florence to restore 
the Medici, and Michelangelo as commis- 
sioner-general conducted the defence. In- 
this capacity he went to Ferrara to study 
the fortifications, and was commissioned by 
the duke to paint a Leda, supposed to be 
the picture in tempera in the National Gal- 
lery (unexhibited), London. This is the 
only other picture by him, besides those al- 
ready mentioned, in existence, for the Three 
Fates, Pitti Gallery, Florence, belongs to his 
school After Aug. 12, 1530, when Florence 
was betrayed to the Imperial forces, Michel- 
angelo resumed his work at the Medici 
Chapel, and carried it on until 1534, when 
he began to paint the Last Judgment, in 
the Sistine Chapel. Before this time he had 
finished the statue of Moses for the tomb of 
Julius IL, finally completed, on a very re- 
duced scale, in 1545 for the Church of S. Pi- 
etro in Vincula. In 1546 Michelangelo suc- 
ceeded Antonio di Sangallo as head architect 
of St. Peter's, confirmed by papal brief, Jan. 
1, 1547. In February of that year he sus- 
tained, a .severe affliction in the death- of Vit- 
toria Colonna, who had long been the pre-

siding deity of his life, and to whom he ad 
dressed so many of his finest sonnets. In 
Dec., 1555, he lost Urbino, his faithful ser 
vant more than twenty-five years. The Gran 
Duke of Tuscany tried to induce Michelan 
gelo to leave Kome for Florence, but in vain 
for he feared that if he did so the great cu 
pola of St. Peter's might never be finished 
as he had designed ; and, with the exception 
of a few months spent at Loreto and in th< 
mountains near Spoleto, he did not again 
absent himself from the city. After his 
death his body was secretly taken to Flor- 
ence, where splendid obsequies were cele

MICHELE DA VERONA, died May 15, 
1525. Tenetian school ; one of his earliest 
known works, the Crucifixion, in S. Stefa- 
no, Milan, dated 1500, is in many respects 
a copy of Jacopo Bellini. As he repeated 
the same subject on a vast scale in S. M. in 
Vanzo, Padua (dated 1505), it is .likely that 
he had some share in the series which 
adorns the school (Scuola) of the Santo. 



He was again in Verona in 1509, as in that 
year he finished the Eternal with Angels, 

(dated 1508) in S. Chiara. The full meas- 
ure of his ability is given in an altarpiece of 

1523, a Madonna Enthroned, in the Church 
of Villa cli Villa, near Este, where he dis- 
plays a not unpleasant mixture of Morone, 
Cirna, and Buonconsiglio. Other works are 
Pentecost, Miniscalchi, Verona ; Crucifixion 
(1505), Seminario vescovile, Padua. C. & 
C., N. Italy, i. 506 ; Bernasconi, 283.

ability in rendering form and in treating 
colour. Possibly identical with Michelino 
da Besozzo or de' Molinari, recorded in 1404 
as a glass painter in the Duomo, Milan. C. 
& C., Italy, ii. 257 ; Burckhardt, 521.

Minuteness of execution is carried to the

success that Scheffer followed them with a 
third, illustrating the meeting of Mignon 
with her father, entitled Mignon and the 
Old Harper (1844), now belonging to Queen 
Victoria, but it was not so favourably re- 
ceived. The subject of Mignon has been

was awarded the

v V, \\ N 

N ^ Parliament, send- 
ing to Westminster Hall The Widow be- 
stowing her Mite, and in the same year his 
Elgiva seized by Odo was in the Acad- 
emy. In the years 1847-49, in connection 
with D. G. Rossetti, Holman Hunt, Wool- 
ner, and others, seven in all, he founded an 
association, afterwards called the Pre-Raph- 
aelite Brotherhood, whose motto was Truth. 
Nothing was to be generalized in their art 
which could and should be expressed in de- 
tail Their theory was that what is common 
in nature is good enough for art. In 1854 
Mr. Millais was elected an A.R.A., being, 
with the exception of Lawrence, the young- 
est artist who has attained that distinction ;

class medal at Paris in 1855, a medal of 
honour in 1878, in which year he was made

MONACHESI, NICOLA born at Tolenti-

in 1851. History and portrait painter, pu- 
pil of the Accademia di S. Luca, Rome, 
under Gasparo Landi, where he won the 
first prize for painting. In 1831 he emi- 
grated to America, made his home in Phila- 
delphia, and soon after became a naturalized 
citizen. Among his earliest patrons were 
Stephen Girard, Madam Rush, and Joseph 
Bonaparte. In 1832 he executed a series of 
frescos in St. John's Roman Catholic Church 
(then the Cathedral), Philadelphia, which 
brought him into prominent notice. These, 
painted upon wet plaster, are said to have 
been the first real frescos executed in this 
country. In 1833-34 he frescoed the Phila- 
delphia Merchants' Exchange, and in 1834 
Matthew Newkirk's residence, the decora- 
tions of which were carefully preserved 
when it was made into Si George's Hall. 
He also frescoed the Roman Catholic 
Churches of St. Mary, St. Joseph, St. Au- 
gustine, and St. Philip, and painted alter- 
pieces for them. In 1841-42 his large his- 
torical picture, The Murder of Jane McCrea, 
was exhibited in Philadelphia. His por- 
traits exist in many old families of Phila-

the local school of Vicenza, he was early 
attracted by Bellini and Carpaccio, but his 
style was not fully developed until he vis- 
ited Padua (1491), where he studied Man- 
tegna. From Padua he went to Verona, 
and in 1496 settled down to steady work in 
Vicenza, where he was held in great esteem, 
and accounted the first resident master.

talent. In 1490 he was master in his guild.

lower of Mantegna, who somewhat modified 
his later work by study of Bellini and Car- 
paccio. Enrolled among the members of 
the Paduan guild in 1469. His constant 
employment hi later years in the Santo, 
where he painted now destroyed frescos in 
the Chapel of the Sacrament (1476), and the 
important works intrusted to him, show the 
esteem in which he was held. C. & 0., N.
