Changes in the Arrangement of 
THE Collection of Paintings. — Look- 
ing toward a more sequent and 
comprehensive grouping of pictures, 
certain changes are now being made 
in the picture galleries. Gallery 20 
contains as far as possible all the 
British pictures in the collections. 
Gallery 21 will eventually become the 
Modern French room. To that end 
the ** Horse Fair," by Rosa Bonheur, 
has already been placed here, as will 
several of the French paintings from 
Gallery 20. This has been made 
possible by the removal of certain 
American pictures to Gallery 12, 
which will hereafter be devoted en- 
tirely to our own painters. 

A start was made last spring toward 
making Gallery 1 1 the Primitive room 
by placing there the great *'St. Chris- 
topher," by Pollajuolo, *'Two Saints," 
by Giovanni di Paolo, and the early 
Austrian altar-piece. To these will 
be added, when possible, certain early 
works now hanging in Gallery 24, 
and the new acquisitions that would, 
in classification, come under this type. 

As the Dutch and Flemish pictures 
predominate in the Marquand collec- 
tion, the Marquand Gallery, Room 14, 
will house the Dutch pictures, re- 
moved from Gallery 1 1. Place will be 
made for these by removing the Eng- 
lish Masters of the Marquand collection 
to the new British room. Gallery 20.

February 16 to April 1, 5:30 p.m. 
April 1 to September 1, 6:00 p.m. 
September 1 to October 15, 5:30 p.m. 
October 15 to February 15, 5:00 p.m. 

On Sundays the Museum is opened at 1 o'clock, p.m.; on all 
other days at 10 o'clock, a.m. 

The copying of all pictures belonging to the Museum is allowed 
on every day except Saturdays, Sundays, and Legal Holidays. 

On Mondays and Fridays an entrance fee of 25 cents is charged. 
Members and Copyists are admitted free on these days. 

The Museum is open to the public on Monday and Friday 
evenings only, from 8 to 10 o'clock ; admission free. 

In the descriptions of the paintings the words "right" and 
"left" always mean right and left of the spectator, except where 
they obviously apply (as his or her right or left hand) to a figure 
in a picture. _^ 

The Index by numbers, consecutive, is to be found on pages 
XXV to xlii. 

Every work in the galleries is distinctly labeled with the name 
of the artist and the number of the picture. (See insert at iitle- 


The size given is of the sight measure or visible painted sur- 
face ; and in every instance the first number indicates the height. 

The measurements are given in inches. 

The Artists' names attached to donations and loans are, as a

As a rule pictured which are lent are not described. 




The Metropolitan Mnsenm of Art is a private corporation, 
managed and controlled by a Board of Trustees^ chosen from its 

At a public meeting, held on the 23rd day of November, 1869, 
a Provisional Conunittee of Fifty cultured and public-spirited 
citizens were appointed to organize the Association. 

On the 31st day of January, 1870, at a meeting of this Com- 
mittee, the Officers and Trustees were elected, consisting of a 
President (John Taylor Johnston), two Vice-Presidents, a Treas- 
urer, Secretary and twenty-one Trustees. 

On the 13th day of April, 1870, a Charter was granted by the 
Legislature of the State of New York, and at a meeting of the 
Trustees, held on April 27th, 1870, a Constitution was adopted. 

Soon after, negotiations were entered into which consummated 
in the purchase of a collection of pictures, consisting chfefly of 
specimens of the Dutch and Flemish Schools, but containing also 
important works of Italian, French, Spanish and English masters. 

It became necessary to make immediate preparation for the 
custody and exhibition of these paintings. The Trustees took 
accordingly a lease for two years from May, 1871, of the building 
known as No. 681 Fifth Avenue, which, although too small for 
their purpose, was the most available habitation they could find. 

In 1872, The Metropolitan Museum of Art was removed from 
its temporary quarters at 681 Fifth Avenue to 128 West Fourteenth 
Street. This large, double house, known as the Cruger Mansion, 
was leased for a number of years by the Trustees. The greenhouses 
and conservatories were fitted up for the exhibition of sculptures, 
and in one of its courtyards the Trustees built a picture-gallery. 
This gallery, lighted from the roof, had five times as much wall 
space as the old quarters on Fifth Avenue, and enabled the Trus- 
tees to extend the interest of the Museum by loan exhibitions of 
paintings, and the display of the Cesnola Collection of antiquities 
from Cyprus, a portion of which had already arrived in this coun- 
try. The Museum remained in this building until the last days 
of 1879, and was daily open to the public from 10 o'clock a.m. 
until 6 o'clock p.m. ^ 

On the 5th of April, 1871, the- State Legislature, at the request 
of the Municipal Authorities of this City, passed an act appropriat 
ing the sum of $500,000, with which to erect a building in the Cen* 

tral Park^ ^^ for the purpose of establishing and maintaining therein 
a Museum and G^ery of Arf 

On April 22d> 1876> the Legislature authorized and directed the 
Department of Public Parks to make and enter into a contract with 
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, for the occupation by it of the 
building which was then being erected, and such other additions as 
may be made to it from time to time. 

On the 24th day of December, 1878, the Park Department exe- 
cuted a written agreement with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 
by yirtue of which the Trustees took possession of the building iu 
Central Park, which was then^nished; and during the year 1879 
all the collections of the Museum were remoyed from the building 
on Fourteenth Street and transferred to their new home in Cen- 
tral Park. Up to this date the Museum was managed, and its work 
done, by different Committees of Trustees; but it now became evi- 
dent that the daily work had grown far beyond the possibility of 
being inanaged through the personal superyision of committees, and 
in 1879, General Louis Palma di Cesnola, who was then Secretary of 
the Board, was chosen Director and placed in charge of the Mu- 
seum, in which capacity he remained until his death (Noyember 
20th, 1904). 

The new building in Central Park was formally inaugurated by 
President Hayes, on March 30th, 1880. The first exhibition of the 
Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Collection took place in one of the old 
Eastern galleries. Soon after it was found necessary to add two 
wings: the South and the iN'orth. The first was inaugurated 
December 18th, 1888; the second, Noyember 4th, 1894; in both 
cases with appropriate ceremonies. 

Plans were then formed by President Henry G. Marquand, 
General di Cesnola, and the Board of Trustees, and designs made by 
the architect, Eichard M. Hunt, for the creation of a new building 
which would more appropriately house the art treasures confided 
to their care, and the City promptly made the necessary appropria- 
tion of one million two hundred thousand dollars for immediate 
use in the furtherance of the project. On December 22d, 1902, the 
center portion of the east front of this new building was completed 
and formally placed in the hands of the Trustees by the Mayor, the 
Hon. Seth Ix)W, and the doors were then opened to the public. In 
1904 the City made another appropriation of one million two hun- 
dred and fifty thousand dollars for extending the new building down 
Fifth Ayenue about three hundred and fifty feet, the working plane 


for which are now being perfected by the architects^ McElim^ Mead 
& White> and the construction will be commenced at as early a date 
as is practicable. 

The building is of light gray stone, classical in design, and 
will, when completed, form a hollow square with the old structures 
enclosed in a grand court. The estimate of the total cost is twenty- 
two million dollars. 

The chair of the President, made vacant by the death of Mr. 
Henry Q. Marquand on February 26th, 1902, was filled by Mr. F. 
W. Bhinelander, who died September 24th, 1904. On November 
2lBt, 1904, Mr. J. Pierponfc Morgan was unanimously elected Presi- 
dent, and on January 21st, 1905, Sir Caspar Purdon Clarke was 
elected Director, of the Museum. 

The Board of Trustees have absolute control of all the funds 
donated and bequeathed to the Institution for its enrichment, and 
Buch other funds as are or may be appropriated by the City for its

This hand-book embraces all the pictures which are con- 
tained in the galleries, staircases, and the Grand Hall. Of 
the pictures herein catalogued, some are lent, a large num- 
ber have been purchased by the Trustees, and the others have 
been acquired either by gift or bequest. The larger portion of 
them are accompanied by conditions which render impossible a 
proper classification of the pictures in the galleries of the Museum, 
and, while the Trustees fully recognize the logical, historical and 
aesthetic reasons for such a classification of their exhibits, they do 
not think it of greater moment (at least for the present) than their 
acquisition. Miss Catharine Lorillard Wolfe bequeathed in 1887 
her entire collection of oil paintings and water-color drawings to 
the Museum, accompanied by an endowment of $200,000. The 
income of this fund to be used for the preservation and increase 
of the collection, which by the terms of the will must be kept 
together or be forfeited to the legal heirs of the donor. 

Other donations and bequests of great value, both in objects of 
art and money, have from time to time augmented the wealth and 
the treasures of the Museum: the first being the munificent gift 
of Mr. Henry O. Marquand, embracing 53 oil paintings by Old 
Masters, and pictures of the English School; the last, in impor- 
tance, that of Mr. Jacob S. Rogers, who at his death (July, 1901) 
bequeathed to the Institution his whole fortune, amounting to 
several millions of dollars.

The ^* Horse Fair," by Rosa Bonhear, was given by Mr. 
Cornelius VanderbiU; then followed the gifts of Judge Henry 
Hilton, '^Friedland, 1807/' by Meissonier, and the "Defense 
of Champigny," by Detaille. Mr. George I. Seney also gave 
twenty oil paintings, containing yaluable examples of the Mod- 
ern Dutch, French, and other Schools. "A Quartette,'^ by Will- 
iam T. Dannat, was the gift of Mrs. Wm. H. Dannat. 

The Museum contains examples of nearly all the leading and 
world-famed schools of paintings, from Jan Van Eyck (1390-1440) 
to the latest and most interesting of the modern painters. In 
Gallery No. 11 may be seen the first acquisition of the Museum by 
purchase, in 1871, a collection of pictures comprised of works by 
the early Dutch and Flemish painters. 

In the southeast staircase there is a group of eight pictures of 
the Eenaissance period, purchased at Florence, and given to the 
Museum by Mr. Cornelius Vanderbilt in 1880. 

Gallery No. 15 is occupied with pictures from the collection of 
Mr. George A. Hearn, twenty-four of which he has given to the 
the Museum. 

A remarkable work by Eugene Delacroix, " L'Enlfivement de 
E6becca," has been added to the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Collec- 
tion, also a landscape by Roueseau and " Boats on the Shore,'' by 
Daubigny. And "The Whale Ship," by Joseph Mallord William 

"The Portrait of the Princesse de Conde," by Jean Marc 
Nattier, " Marie Marguerite Lambert de Thorigny," by Nicolas de 
Largillierre, and "The Emperor Joseph II. of Austria," by 
Frangois Hubert Drouais and "VoluptS," by Jean Baptiste 
Greuze, were purchased by the Museum, and have been placed in 
Gallery No. 19. Among the most recent acquisitions by gift and 
bequest are: "Washington Crossing the Delaware," by Emanuel 
Leutze, gift of Mr. John S.Kennedy; "Portrait of George 
Washington," by Charles Wilson Peale, gift of Mr. C. P. 
Huntington; Portrait of President Henry G. Marquand, by John 
^ S. Sargent, given by the Trustees of the Museum; "The Grand 
Canal at Venice," by J. M. W. Turner, the bequest of Mr. Cor- 
nelius Vanderbilt; " Christopher Columbus," by Sebastiano del 
Piombo, gift of Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan; "The JSgean Sea," 
by F. E. Church, gift of Mr. Wm. Church Osborn and Prof. 
Henry F. Osborn; " Cambyses' Punishment of an Unjust Judge," 
by Peter Paul Eubens, gift of Mr. Wm. E. Dodge, and '' The 
Holy Family," also by Peter Paul Eubens, gift of Mr. J. Henry

Smith in 1902. And '' The Portrait of Baron Arnold De Roy/' 
by Van Dyck, the gift of Mr. George A. Hearn, 1905. 

The most important loan in the year 1902 was that of Mr. George 
W. Vanderbilt, who lent for one year one hundred and thirty-five 
pictures from the collection formed by his father, Mr. William H. 
Vanderbilt. The term of this loan has now been extended in- 

All the paintings in Galleries Ifos. 11, 13, 14, 17, 18, 20 and 21, 
including those in the staircases, are the property of the Museum, 
as well as a large number of those in Galleries Nos. 12, 15, 19 and 25.

ACHENBACH, Andreas. DUsseldorf School 

Bom at Hesse Cassel, 1815. Landscape and marine painter; pupil 
of Dlisseldorf Academy, 1827-1835, under Schirmer, and one -of the most 
distinguished painters of the school. He visited Holland in 1832-33; Nor- 
way, 1835; the Bavarian Tyrol, 1836, and Italy, 1843. He painted land- 
scapes, mountain, forest, and sea, with like ability and power. Member of 
the Berlin, Amsterdam, and Antwerp Academies. Paris Salon. Medals: 
third class, 1839; first class, 1855; third class, 1867. Legion of Honor, 1864. 


The sun bursting thro' the broken stormclouds is setting behind a dark 
ru^ed cliff at the right. At the left the sea lashed into foam by the wind has 
dnven to the rocky coast the wreckage of a ship, and a boat, in which the 
sailors are trying to make a landing. 

Bequeathed by Miss Cathabinb Loriijabd Wolfs, 1887. On canvas, 32 H.; 42 W. 

ACHENBACH, Oswald, msseldorf School. 

Bom at Dlisseldorf, 1827; died, February 1, 1905; brother and pupil of 
Andreas. Visited the Bavarian Alps at an early period, and went to Switzer- 
land and Italy in 1845, 1850, and 1851. His representations of Southern 
scenery and of peculiar atmospheric effects are of rare excellence. Medals: 
Paris, third class, 1859; second class, 1861, 1863. Legion of Honor, 1863. 


The full moon is seen rising thro' the dull haze of a hot Sunmier evening. 
Smoking Vesuvius is at the left and the creamy white City of Naples lies in 
the middle distance. A row of tall trees in the foreground line down a dusty 
roadway crowded with peajsants who gather about an old stone foimtain at 
the right to refresh themselves. 

Bequeathed by Miss Catharine Lorillard Wolfe, 1887. 

Purchased in Berlin. Signed On canvas, 39 H.; 55 W. 


ALBANI, Francesco. Bolognese School 

Bom at Bologna, 1578; died there, 1660. Soii^f a silk merchant. Hia 
father desired to bring him up to his own profession, but his decided art genius 
so asserted itself that he was placed in the academy of Denys Calvaert, where 
Quido Reni was a pupil. Albani and Guido became friends, and when the 
latter went to Rome and entered the school of Garracci, Albani quickly fol- 
lowed. When Annibale Garracci was employed on the frescos of St. Giacomo 
degli Spagnuoli he fell sick, and by his reconmiendation Albani was selected 
to finish them. He also painted the mythological frescos in the VerosfH (now i 
Torlonia) Palace. In the Borghese Gallery and at Turin are his famous 
pictures of the '' Four Elements.'' He also painted for the Duke of Mantua 
the stories of "Diana and Act»on" and "Venus and Cupid." Ks best 
pictures are those of mythological and fanciful subjects.

Gift of Mrs. Jbrsmiah Milbank. 1891. 

Signed and dated, 1889. On canvas. 49^ H. ; 80} W. 

ALLEGRI, Antonio (called II Correggio) (?). Parmesan School 

Bom at Correggio in 1494 ; died there, March 5, 1534. Son of Pel- 
legrino Allegri. Probably pupil of his father's brother, Lorenzo, and of 
Antonio Bartolotti, both second-rate painters of his native town. At Modena 
he is said to have found a better master in Francesco Bianchi, called Ferrari, 
who belonged to the school of Francia; but as Bianchi died in 1510, this, 
like aU that concerns Correggio's training, is uncertain. "Correggio looked 
at the world in a single mood of sensuous joy," as a place in which every- 
thing is full of happy life and soft pleasure. A poetic ideality untrammeled 
by the conventionality of schools, systems, or methods other than his 
own, found fullest expression in an all-pervading sweetness which charac- 
terizes his works. "The Madonna of St. Francis" (1514), "Madonna of St. 
George," "Madonna of St. Sebastian," "La Notte" (1522 or 1528), Dresden 
Gallery; "Rape of Ganymede," "Jupiter and lo," Vienna Museum; "Madonna 
Adoring Jesus," UflSzi, Florence; "Marriage of St. Catherine," Louvre, Paris. 
Other works may be seen in St. Petersburg, London, Naples, Venice, and other 
(ralleries, notably that of Parma.

the face of a cherub. 

Gift of Mr. Cornxuus VANDBRsn/r. 1880. On plaster, 20 H.; 17i W. 

ALLORI^ Cristoforo (called II Bronzino). Florentine School, 

Bom at Florence, 1577; died there, 1621. Pupil of his father, and 
afterwards of Santo di Tito, whose style Cristoforo at first followed, but 
abandoned for the new Florentine eclectic manner based on that of Correggio. 
He became one of the best artists in Florence of his time, but his habits 
were irregular, and he left but few pictures. He excelled in portrait 


Head and bust, with the face three-quarters to the left; the eyes are 
drooped as if in meaitation : a slight piece of drapery falls from the head and 
a blue mantle covers the shoulders. 

Gift of Mr. Corneltds Vandbrbil/t, 1880. On plaster, 18 H.; 13 W. 

ALLSTON, Washington. American School.

ASSCHE, Henri van. Flemish School. 

Bom at Brussels, 1774; died there, 1841. Landscape painter; first

skill. Member of Ghent, Brussels, Antwerp, and Amsterdam Academies.

BARTOLOMMEO, Fra (or II Prate) (?). Baccio, della 

Porta. Florentine School. 

Bom at Soffignano, near Prato, 1475; died at Florence, 1517. He was 
a pupil of Cosimo Rosselli in Florence, and lived near the gate of St. Piero, 
from which circmnstance was derived his name of della Porta. He was the 
intimate friend of Mariotto Albertinelli. He had acquired great fame for 
the beauty of his Madonnas, and had been commissioned to execute a 
fresco of the "Last Judgment" in the Convent of St. Marco, about the time 
when Savonarola went to Florence to preach against the sinfulness of the city. 
Bartolommeo became the earnest friend of the preacher, and was so carried 
away by his influence that he burned all his studies and drawings of profane 
subjects and those which represented nude figures. When Savonarola was 
seized, tortured, and burned, Bartolommeo took the vows of a Dominican 
friar, and left the unfinbhed pictures to be completed by Albertinelli. During 
four years he led a most austere life, never touching his pencil. About this 
time Raphael arrived in Florence. He was but twenty-one, but already a 
great painter. He visited the friar's cell, and a deep friendship between the 
two was the consequence. To this we owe the after works of Fra Barto- 
lommeo. About 1513 he visited Rome. After his return to Florence he 
executed the "Madonna della Misericordia," now at Lucca, and the "St. 
Mark," which is in the Pitti Palace. His boy angels are beautifully painted. 
His works are seen in the Louvre, Vienna Gallery, and the Berlin Museum, 
but he is best studied in Florence.

Justinian I (Flavins Anicius Justinianus), sumamed the Great, a Byzan- 
tine Emperor, bom at Tauresium, a village near Sardica (now oophia), in 
Bulgaria, in 482^or 483 ; died, 565. He was the son of a poor barbarian family, 
but nb elevation was promoted by hb imcle, Justin I^ who, shortly before hb 
death in 527, adopted him as Co-Emperor. The pohtical events of hb reini 
may be simmied up in the wars of Belisarius and the eunuch Narses, who 
obtained successes over the Persians in the East, and the Vandab and Goths 
in Italy, and in the terrible sedition which broke out at Constantinople in 532. 
The glor^ of hb reign b the famous digest of Roman law^ known generally as 
the Justinian Code, which was compiled out of the Gre^onan, The<xiosian, and 
Hermo^enian codes^ by the ablest lawyers of the empire, imder the genius of 
the jurisconsult, Tnbonian. Their labors consbt — I, of the " Statute Law," 
or Justinian Code, properlv so called. II, ''The Pandects," a digest of the 
decisions and opinions of former magbtrates and lawyers. These two cmn- 
pilations consisted of matter that lay scattered through more than two thou- 
sand volumes, now reduced to fifty. Ill, ''The Institutes," an abridgment in 
four books, containing the substance of all the laws in elementary form. 
IV, The laws of modem date, including Justinian's own edicte, collected into 
one volume and called, "The New Code." These labors, which a Csesar had 
not been able to accomplish, were completed by the year 541. Besides this 
important work of imperial reform, Justinian was a great builder and engineer, 
and works of public utility were kept constantly in progress in all parte of the 
empire. He was remarkable for his temperance and chastity, ana not less for 
his great learning and diligent application to the duties of ms high office.

BERCHEM (Berghem), Claes (Nicholas), (Nicolaes). 

DtUch School. 

Bom at Haarlem, 1620; died at Amsterdam, 1683. Son of Pieter 
Klaasze. The reason for his being called Berchem, or Berghem, is not known, 
but he usually signed his works by that name. He studied with his father, 
Van Goyen, J. B. Weenix, and Jan Wils, and married the daughter of the latter. 
It is evident from his works that he went to Italy, although no account of his 
having done so is given. He painted genre, battles, landscapes, cattle, and 
portraits. His best works are his small landscapes with figures and cattle. 
Berchem is the most celebrated of the group of painters to which he belongs^ 


Smith describes 417 of his works, and he left besides more than fifty etchings. 
The galleries of Munich, Dresden, Vienna, Berlin, St. Petersburg, and the 
Louvre contain the largest number of his works. Some am also iu Englcuid, 
in the National Gallery, and at Dulwich, and Lord Ashburton has one of his 
best productions, called '^Le Fagot.'' He seldom made large pictures.

walls. Death passed over them like a whirlwind, not sparing one out of the 
five hundred horsemen.''

BLUM, Robert F. American School. 

Bom at Cincinnati, Ohio, 1857; died, 1903. At the age of sixteen he 
entered a lithographic establishment, but soon came to New York and gave a 
number of years to illustrative work. From 1880 to 1889 he made several trips 
abroad. In 1890 he went to Japan, conmiissioned by the Scribners to work 
conjointly with Sir Edwin Arnold. In the mean time his paintings had 
brought recognition and he was awarded bronze, silver and gold medals. The 
''Bead Stringers," a Venetian subject, occasioned his election as associate 
member of the Academy of Design, and "The Ameya" brought him into full 
membership. Upon his return from Japan in the faU of 1892, after writing and 
illustrating articles on Japan, and completing several easel pictures, Mr. Blum 
made an entirely new departure, taking up mural decoration. The " Moods of 
Music'' in Mendelssohn Hall, begun in 1893, is his first serious effort along the 
new lines and is an initial proof, as later productions bear witness, that the 
artist was well qualified to exeicise his powers in the broad field of mural

Rosa Bonheur made her delmt at the Paris Salon of 1841, to which 
she sent two small pictures of sheep, goats, and rabbits. She exhibited each 
following year except 1851-52. In 1853 she exhibited her masterpiece, the 
now famous " Horse Pair." The subse<quent history of this painting is given in 
the following extract from a letter written to Mr. S. P. Avery bv Mr. Ernest 
Gambart, the original purchaser of the picture, formerly of London, and now 
retired from business and living at Nice: *' I will give you the real story of the 
* Horse Fair^ now in New York. It was painted in 1852 by Rosa Bonheur, 
then in her thirtieth year, and exhibited in the next Salon. Though much 
admired, it did not find a purchaser. It was soon after exhibited at Ghent, 
meeting again with much appreciation, but was not sold, as art did not flourish 
at the time. In 1855, the picture was sent by Rosa Bonheur to her 
native town of Bordeaux, and exhibited there. She offered to sell it to the 
town at the verv low price of 12,000 francs ($2,400). While there I asked her 
if she would sell it to me, and allow me to take it to England and have it en- 
graved. She said: * I wish my picture to remain in France. I will once more 
impress on my countrymen my wish to sell it to them for 12,000 francs. If 
they refuse, you can nave it^ but if you take it abroad, you must pay me 
40,000 francs.' The town failing to make the purchase, I at once accepted 
these terms, and Rosa Bonheur then placed the picture at nw disposal. 
I tendered her the 40,000 francs, and she said: 'I am much gratified at your 
giving me such a noble price, but T do not like to feel that I have taken advan- 
tage of your liberality. Let us see how we can combine in the matter. You 
wm not be able to have an engraving made from so large a canvas. Suppose I 

Saint you a small one of the same subject, of which I will make you a present.' 
>f course I accepted the gift, and thus it happened that the large work went 


traveling over the kingdom on exhibition, while Thomas Landseer was making 
an engraving from the quarter-size replica. 

"After some time, m 1857 (I thmk), I sold the ori^nal picture to Mr. 
Wm. P. Wright, New York (whose picture gallery and residence were at W«e- 
hawken, N. J,), for the sum of 30,000 francs, but as he claimed a share of tb» 
profits of its ^diibition in New York and other cities, he reallv paid me only 
22,000 francs for it. I offered to repurchase the pictiure in 1870 for 50,000 
francs, but ultimately I understood that Mr. Stewart paid a much lai|^r price 
for it on the dispersion of Mr. Wright's gallery. The auarter-size rephca, from 
which the engraving was made, I finally sold to Mr. Jacob Bell, who be- 
queathed it, in 1859, to the nation, and it is now in the National GaUeiy in 
London. A second, still smaller, replica was painted a few years later, and 
was resold some time ago in liOndon for £4,000 ($20,000). There is aJso a 
smaller water-color drawing, which was sold to Mr. Bolckow for 2,500 guineas 
($12,000), and is now an heirloom belonging to the town of Miadleborough. 
That is the whole history of this grand work. The Stewart canvas is the real 
and true ori^al, and only large size * Horse Fair.' 

"Once m Mr. Stewart's possession, it never left his gallery until the 
auction sale of his collection, March 25, 1887, when it was purchased by Mr. 
Cornelius Vanderbilt for the sum of $55,500, and presented to the Metropolitan 
Museum of Art. Hamerton calls Rosa Bonheur *the most accomplished 
female painter who ever lived,' and adds: *She is a pure and generous 
woman as well, and can hardly be too much admired, whether we regard her 
as a woman or artist. She is simple in her tastes and habits of life, and many 
stories are told of her generosity to others.^ "

A contemporary of Teniers, and, like him, a painter of genre subjects, but of the 
higher ranks in life. He usually represented but few figures, and such scenes 

as ladies at their toilets, musical parties, conversations, etc. He excelled in

able. The general tone of bis pictures is cool, his heads being warmly colored. 
He painted small portraits, but these are rare in public galleries. His own

Purchased in 1873 from the collection of the late Baron Str6\isberg, 
Berlin. The Brittany peasantiy are very quaint in their costume, wearing 
broad-brimmed hats and flowing hidr and in some districts trunk hose of the 
sixteenth century. They are usually spare and wiry in their persons, almost 
unchuiged in their manners, ciistoms, and habits, and old l^ends and super- 
stitions stiU retain their hold on the popular mind. Of ancient moninnents of 
different ages there is no lack in Brittanv, and above all, of Celtic remains; 
those extraordinary masses of rough imhewn stones are supposed to be in 
some way connected with the religion of the Druids. Brittan^r appears to 
have be^ the sacred land of the Qauls. the center of their worship to which 
the various nations and taribes repairea on pilgrimages at stated tunes to pay 
their devotions. Their mysterious influence b not yet by any means effaced 
from the minds of the lower orders of Brittany. Almost everjr church has its 
strange legend, and every saint his special patronage, and on his f Ste day a pil- 
grim^ or pardon is celebrated. The pardon of St. Mathurin held at Lamballe 
on Whitsunday is much frequented by pUgrims, who dance the old Breton 
dances. The pardon celebrated four times ayear at Rumegol. near Le Faou, is 
attended with very curious ceremonies. These pardons take place at fixed 


periods around about certain churches, but often in uncultivated fields, where 
tents are erected, and where the fete continues for several days, and is attended 
by thousands of the peasantry of both sexes. The most important of these 
pardons are those of Ste. Anne d' Auray, and of Ste. Anne de P&lud. which last is 
the most picturesque of all, and takes place at the seaside. The one rei)re- 
sented in M. Breton's picture is held at Kergoat, near Douamenes and Quim-

113 "TIT AN* S GOBLET, 1833." 

A remarkable Gfymbolic painting by the distinguished American painter, 
influenced by the Norse Legend of the Tree of Life. The rugged moimtains 
catching the departing eleams of the setting sun form the background for a 
gigantic cup placed on the projectii]^ point of a rocky headland jutting into a 
sea, on the shore of which is seen an Eastern City, in the inunediate foreground 
verdure-clad cliffs glowing in the setting sun, an extensive landscape spreading 
^ut to the left. The spintual idea in the center of the painting conveying the 
beautiful Norse theory that Life and the World is but as a tree with ramifying 
branches, is carefully carried out by the painter, the stem of the goblet being a 
massive tree-trunk^ the branches of which spread out and hold lietween them 
an ocean dotted with sails, surrounded by dense forests and plains, in which 
appear Greek ruins and a modem Italian building, lypical of ancient and 
modem civilization. The painting has been exhibited at the Pennsylvania 
Academy of Fine Arts, 1842, and many later exhibitions.

Bom at East Bergholt, June 11th, 1776; died suddenly, at London, 1837. 
His style was veiy broad and powerful, and his landscapes are possessed of a 
noble quality which reveals the beauty of English cultivated scenery in the 
most charming manner, and his landscapes, in which mills, weirs, and dykes 
are prominent features, often glisten with the early morning dew, or, wet 
with rain, sparkle in the sunlight bursting through the storm clouds in the 
sky. He was both vigorous and realistic; strong in his originality, yet refined 
and cultivated in his mind. His pictures possess a quality which fill a place 
imoccupied by any other Englbh landscape painter, and they have done much 
to form the style of the modem French landscape schooL

CRAYER (Craeyer), Gaspard de. Flemish School. 

Bom at Antwerp, 1584; died at Ghent, 1669. Pupil of Raphael Van 
Coxcyen, in Brussels, a contemporary of Rubens, who, it is said, admired his 
works. He was also the friend of Van Dyf'k, who painted his portrait. 
Crayer's pictures were mostly of biblical subjects. His color was subdued, but 
truthful; he had a free, masterly touch, and his feeling for beauty sometimes 


borders on the ideal. "The Coronation of St. Rosalie by the Infant Christ," 
in the Museum at Ghent, is one of his finest works; this picture was carried 
away by the French, but returned. The "Martyrdom of St. Blasius,'' in the 
same museiun, was his last work, executed when he was over eighfy years old. 
In the Munich Galleiy there is an inmiense enthroned Madonna with Angels, 
surrounded by Saints; the lower figures are portraits of himself, his brother, 
sister, and nephew. Works of his are also in the Louvre, Brussels Gallery, etc. 


Alexander clad in armor, with a richlv embroidered red mantle knotted 
and falling over the right shoulder into the nands of a page, is standing before 
Diogenes with his right hand extended and resting upon his unsheathed sword. 
Soldiers clad in armor and holding spears surround the tub in which Diogenes 
is seated. At the right of the picture an equerry, with a dog at his feet, is 
holding a dapple-gray horse from which the King has dismounted.

CROME, John (called Old Crome). English School 

Bom at Norwich, 1769; died there, 1821. He began life as a doctor's 
boy, and afterwards was apprenticed to a coach-painter. He took to land- 
scape-painting without having had any professional training, and settled at 
Norwich, where in 1805 he founded the Norwich Society of Artists. He was 
never in London except on hasty visits, spending his entire life in his native 
town. He had a son and a brother, both artists.

CU YP, Aclbert Dutch School 

Bom at Dortrecht, 1620; died there, 1691. This highly gifted painter 
was from early infancy associated with, and attracted by, the beauties of 
graphic imitation. His father, Jacob Gerritz Cuyp, an artist of no inconad- 
erable talent both in portraiture and landscape, was one of the founders of the 
Academy of Fainting at Dort, and it was from him that Aelbert received his 
first instructions, and in his ^rly works may be traced the style of his father. 
England appreciated and purchased his works long before his own country- 
men recognized his ability.

of cattle is watched over by a cowherd and his dog, both stretcned out upon 
the meadow grass near by. At the right, and beyond, a man is leading a

bank of the stream on which are two boats, one with the sail spread. Upon 
the opposite bank are two mansions. At the left of the spectator the nver

in the open air, he rendered with all the freshness of springtime, the tender 
accuracy of color, which contact with nature alone made possible, and brought

Pabis, May 29, 1897. 
Mr. Henrt Hilton. 

Mt Dear Sir: I have learned with great pleasure that you have become 
the purchaser of my painting, exhibited this year in our Art Salon, and I am 
happy that it finds a place in your gallery, which enjoys a vexy great reputation 
in France. I know that I shall be '' in good company'' with you/ and it is so 
much the more gratifying to me, as I consider this last painting the most im- 
portant work I have ever produced. 

The episode which I have chosen gives scope for a great development of 
subject. It is the moment when the division of General Faron (now inspector 
of Mcune), after having taken Champigny, situated above the Mame, fortified 
itself in the village and defended, foot by foot, the house and enclosures against 
the return attack of the Saxony and Wtirtemberg divisions, in the battle of 2d 
Decemb^, 1870. The chftteau which I have shown is one of those which are 
found at the fork of the two roads at Chennevi^res — a plaoe well known to 
those ParisiaDB who took part in the scenes of the siege of Paris. The officer 


shown in the center of the picture b General Farcm, who was i^pointed Gen- 
eral of Division on the field of battle. The foot soldiers belong to the 113th 
Regiment of the Line, who lost a great number in the three davs of fight. The 
Sappers, who are making the embrasures in the wall to i^ow the sharpshooters 
to nre imder protection, and are barricading the opening; with aH kinds of 
material; the artillerists, who are placing the battery suns m position; all like- 
wise were imder the orders of General Faron, who at tnis time conmianded the 
right wing of the French army. 

I have endeavored to pprtra^, i^ the most exact manner possible, the vari- 
ous scenes of which I was a witness, having been mysdfa soldier in tb« 
** Garde Mobile** durine the si^ of Paris: and in painting this work I have 
had the advantage of being able to reproduce some souvenirs absolutely per- 
sonaL I attach, therefore, much importance to this painting, and am specially 
desirous — outside of the Paris Exhibition — ^f or permission to exhibit it in Gei> 
many, where I have been verv particularly soUcited to show my military worioi 

1 particularly desire to be represented at this international gathering, and 
I have selected naturally this my most important work. It is the first time 
since the war of 1870 that French art has been exhibited in Germany^ and the 
presence of nilitaiy paintings recalling souvenirs of the late war will add a 
pecidiar piquancy. 

I have always been very sensible of the favors shown me in America, and 
I am happy to be able to testify this to you especially. 

Receive, sir, the expression of my dustinguished regards, etc.

marvelous aptitude as a colorist. He rendered with equal facility the enchant- 
ments of the landscape flooded with sunshine, and the deep forest in luminous 
twilight, or nymphs with flesh of exquisite tone; and dazzled the eye with all 
the seductions of a grand colorist. Medals: third class, 1844; second class, 
1846; first class, 1848. Legion of Honor, 1851.

DIETRICH, Christian Wilhelm Ernst German School 

Bom at Weimar, 1712; died at Dresden, 1774. Pupil of his father and 
Alexander Thiele, and succeeded well in copying the works of Rembrandt, 
Everdingen, Ostade, Poelemberg, Heinrich Roos and Salvator Rosa. He 
had no originality, and his color and execution were subject to much criti- 
cism, yet he had great popularity, and his works are numerous. The 
Dresden Gallery has fifty-one, and all the German Galleries have specimens 
of his works. In the National Gallery the "Wandering Musicians'' is an 
unusually good work of this artist.

wonderful facility of execution, led him into exaggerations which deprived

DUPRE, Jules. Barbizon School. 

Bom at Nantes, 1811 ; died at L 'Isle-Adam, 1889. One of the most original 
and powerful painters of the modem French School. At twelve years of age he 
was the principal decorator in his father's porcelain factory on the banks of the 
Oise. ''It was in the contemplation of nature, in his isolation amidst her 


influences, that the mind of the lad wa& opened to her beauty, and that her 
mysteiy was sounded by his thought. In his hours of freedom the boy used 
to wander over the fields with sketch-book and pencil. No professor inter- 
poiod himsfilf between this talent in its birth and what it portrayed. What 
he wii ignorant of he asked but of her; what he learned was from her teaching. 
At eighteen the little china painter had become a young master. At sixty, he 
was the illustrious, respected, veteran of the School of 1830 — Delacroix, Rous- 
seau, Diaz, Corot, Baiye, Millet, Decamps, and Troyon." Medals: second

DURAND, Asher Brown. American School 

Bom at South Orange, N. J., August 21, 1796; died there, 1886. He 
studied engraving with his father and with Peter Maverick, whose partner 
he became ia 1817. His ''Declaration of Independence," after Trumbull, 
first brought him into prominent notice as an engraver. He was one of the 
original members of the National Academy of Design, organized in 1826, 
and was elected president at the resignation of Professor Morse in 1845, a 
position he held until 1861. About 1835 he resolved to become a piunter, 
and imtil the time of his death devoted himself to that branch of the pro- 
fession. Among the better known of his earlier works are: ''Harvey Birch 
and Washington," "The Wrath of Peter Stuyvesant," "The Capture of 
Andr^," "Dance on the Battery," "The Forest Primeval," afl* "Franconia 
Mountains." * 

Many of his pictures have been engraved.

DURER, Albrecht (?). OermanSchooL 

Bom at Nuremberg, 1471; died there, 1528. This artist, if not really 
the founder of the German school, perfected the art which already existed 
in his coimtry. He was a sculptor, architect, and painter. His drawing 


was rich in life and expression; his coloring very unequal; his nude figures 
ugly and vulgar, and his love for the fantastic prevented him from becoming 
what he might otherwise have been. He became a disciple of Michael Wolge- 
muth, in whose atelier he remained three years. In 1490 he set out on his 
travels, and in 1494 returned to Nuremberg and settled himself as a painter. 
He remained there ten years. In 1505 he went to Venice, Padua and Bo- 
logna. The following year he returned to Nuremberg, where he remained till 
1520, and executed an immense number of paintings, drawings, engravings, 
and some carved works in boxwood and steatite. He then made a journey 
into the Netherlands, was absent about a year, and returned to his native 
city, never to leave it again. Although his pictures are scarce, the large Ger- 
man Galleries have specimens of his work. "The Four Temperaments" are 
now in the Pinakothek at Munich, thb Gallery has also five large pictures 
of the life of Christ. The Virgin holding the naked Child in her arms is now 
in the Belvedere at Vienna. These are but a small part of the important 
works of Dttrer; the Berlin Gallery has several, and the Dresden Gallery four.

DIJCK, Sir Anthony (Antoon) van. Flemish School 

Bom at Antwerp, 1599; died at London, 1641. The most distinguished 
of Rubens' pupils. One of the many great artists whose gifts showed them- 
selves almost from birth. He was the son of a glass painter. At ten he had 
already begun to paint; at fifteen he had entered Rubens' studio; and at 
nineteen he was himself a "master." 

For five years (1620-25) he was traveling and painting in Italy, with 
letters of introduction from Rubens, and on his return to Antwerp he at once 
became the court painter of his time. Queens visited him in his studio, and 
the nobility of three nations considered it an honor to be painted by him. 

He twice visited London, in 1620 and in 1627, before he finally settled 

theie in 1632. 


On his first presentation to Charles I, he obtained pennission to paint 
the king and queen. He was appointed painter to the court, was knighted, 
and received a pension of £200. A town house was given him at Black- 
friars and a country house at Eltham. 

He always went magnificently dressed, had a numerous and gallant 
equipage, and kept so good a table in his apartment that few princes were 
more visited or better served. 

For seven years Van Dyck worked at the portraits of the English aris- 
tocracy with indefatigable industry. Nearly half of all his known pictures 
are in England (a large collection of them was brought together at the Gros- 
venor Gallery in 1887), but in the National Gallery he is at present incom- 
pletely ^presented. There are no pictures there either of women or of children 
in both of which he excelled. 

The last two years of his life were mainly spent in traveling with his 
yoimg wife, the granddaughter of Lord Ruthven. He died when only forty- 
two, and was buried in the old Church of St. Paul's. 

Van Dyck was essentially the painter of princes, distinguished by the 
indelible mark of courtly grace and refinement which he gave to all his sitters.

EYCK, Jan van. (?) Flemish School 

Bom at Maeseyck, Eyck-sur-Meuse 1380 to 1390(?); died at Bruges, 
1440. The brothers Hubert and Jan van Eyck are distinguished as being 
the inventors (or improvers) of Oil Painting. The chief credit is usually

PREPARAVIT DOMS FILIO DNI MEI." King of Holland sale, 1850. 
Exhibited at Manchester. 1857, and at the Royal Academy in 1871, by A. J. 
Beresford Hope. Described in Waagen Art Treasures, IV, 190. 

The figures of the Virgin and Child are copied from a signed picture by Jan van Eyck, the 
*^yirffin by a Foantain,*' at Antwerp. The arcnitectural backerronnd is^siinilar to that in one 
of Hobert van Byck's miniatures at Torin (now destroyed). Bverything, therefore, points to 
the picture being done in Jan van Eyck^s studio by a close follower.

GHIRLANDAJO (in Florentine dialect, Grillandajo)? (Real 
name, Domenico di Tommaso Curradi di Doffo Bigordi.) 

Florentine School. 

Bom at Florence, 1449; died there, 1494. It is said that hb father 
was a goldsmith, who made such exquisite garlands for the hair that he 
was called Ghirlandajo (the garland-twiner), which name descended to his 
children. Vasari says he studied under Fra Bartolommeo. He became a 
mosaic-worker and celebrated painter. He introduced in his picture the por- 


traits of celebrated and important personages of his time, and was original in 
many ways. His life is a landmark in the history of Florentine art. In the 
technicalities of fresco painting he excelled. His works are highly finished, 
and may be seen in the Louvre; six pictures in the Berlin Museum, and others 
in the Dresden, Munich and National Galleries. Ghirlandajo was the master 
of Michelangelo.

first imder Joa6 Luxan Martinez and, after, some years in Rome. In 1774 re- 
turned to Spain and settled in Madrid. Painted pictures of religious subjects 
and portraits, and found continual employment among the nobility; but his 
chief excellence was that of a satirist with the pencil. He may be called the 
Hogarth in Spain. He parodied the religious pictures and painted priests in 
the form of asses and apes, and was never weaiy of making the Hierosnymite 
and Franciscan friars ridiculous. He painted with dashing boldness, some- 
times executing an entire piece with his palette knife and put in the delicate 
touches of sentiment with his thumb.

GRECO, El. Spanish School. 

Bom in Greece (or in Venice of Greek parents ?) about 1548 ; died in 
Toledo, 1625. Real name Domenico Theotocopuli (Teoscopoli) ; sumamed 
in Venice, where he is said to have studied in the school of Titian, II Greco 
(The Greek). Settled in Toledo about 1577, and became known by an 
altarpiece, **The Stripping of Christ before Crucifixion," in the sacristy of 
the cathedral, quite in Titian^s style. Called to Madrid to paint at the Escorial 
by Philip II. His best work is the ' ' Burial of Gonzales Ruis, Count of Or- 
gaza'' in the Church of S. Tom6, at Toledo. Later he adopted a grayish 
style of coloring and greatly deteriorated. 



Mary, the Mother, clad in a crimson robe with a blue mantle over her 
shoulders, sits in the center of the picture and holds with both hands a white 
drapery upon which lies the Infant from whom emanates the celestial light 
which illumines the place. Joseph is at the right with arms outstretched in

GREUZE, Jean-Baptiste. French School. V 

Bom at Tourmia, near MScon, August 21, 1725; di^dat the Louvre, in 
Paris, March 21, 1805. Genre and portrait painter. Pupil at Lyons of 
Gromdon; he studied afterwards in the Academy at Paris and at Rome. His 
first picture, " A Father Explaining the Bible to His Children," seemed to 
exceed anything that was expected of Greuze. He was elected an a^grie or 
Associate of the French Academy of Painting, in 1755, when his picture, 
^^UAveugle trompe," was exhibited, and in the same year he went to Italy 
with the Abb6 Gougenot. In 1761 his "UAccordie de Village^* (Louvre) 
excited the greatest enthusiasm. Angry at being received into the Academy 
(1769) as a genre and not as a history painter, Greuze retired for a time to 
Anjou whence he returned to exhibit pictures which attracted all Paris. Ex- 
hibited at the Salons of 1755, 1757, 1759, 1761, 1763, 1765, 1769, 1800, 1801, 
1804. He amassed a large fortime, but lost it during the Revolution. Neg- 
lected by the public, which admired only the new school of David, Greuze passed 
his last years in misery and regret. His wife, who was Mile. Barbuty, whose 
charming face appears in so many of his pictures, was an extravagant and 
worthless woman, from whom he was separated long before his death.

times confounded; but those of Guardi are more sketchy than Canaletto's. 
They are spirited and lifelike, have countless figures, gondolas^ etc., all of 
which show a freedom of execution; while his sharp touches of light and 
bright colors give spirit and sparkling effect.

HALS, Frans (The Elder). Dutch School. 

Bom at Antwerp (?) 1584 (?), (exact date not known); buried at Haarlem, 
1st of September, 1666 (confirmed by Dr. Bredius, July, 1907). Pupil of Carel 
(Karl) Van Mander. One of the merriest and brightest-witted of all the Dutch 
portrait pamters. He was the founder of a National style, and was one of the 
greatest masters in portraiture of his own or of any time. Of the host of dis- 
tinguished painters in that branch of art who practised in the Netherlands in 


the first half of the XVII century, he stands forth as the first — ^Rembrandt only 
excepted. His unusual talent excited the admiration of Van Dijck. He was 
twice married, and left four sons, all painters. He led an irregular and improvi- 
dent life, but he left as a l^acy to the world an imperishable name. 1^ flesh 
coloring is vital; handling broad, masterly, and vigorous. He painted large pic- 
tures of archers and civic guards. The best of these may be seen at Haarlem 
in the RdteL-de-VilU, In an apartment of the Oude Man Httys, a benevolent 
institution, there are two other fine works of this class. The Museimis at 
Amsterdam have 7 pictures by him, The ELague 2, the Louvre 1, the Na- 
tional Gallery 2.

Bom at Plymouth, 1786; died at London, 1846. Student at the Royal 
Academy in 1805; exhibited in 1809 his "Dentatus Murdered by His Own 
Soldiers/' but, dissatisfied with the position assigned it, refused to contrib- 
ute any more. After painting portraits in Plymouth, he won a considerable 
reputation in 1814 by his ''Judgment of Solomon." In 1820 he produced 
"Christ's Triimiphant Entry into Jerusalem,*' the exhibition of which, in 
London, brought him three thousand guineas; but it procured him no com- 
missions, and was finally sold for two hundred and forty pounds and sent 
to America. It is now in Cincinnati. Though in great pecuniary difficulties, 
and several times in the debtor's prison, he still clung to the belief that he 
was the great historical painter of the age, and that in time his efforts would 
be appreciated. But he was at last overwhelmed by his disappointments 
and troubles and committed suicide. Haydon's lectures on Paintings were 
published in 1844-46, and his life, from his autobiography and journals, 
edited and compiled by Tom Taylor, in 1853.

Bom at Kungsdr, 1851 ; died in the Bavarian Highlands, Nov. 20, 1890- 
He was the son of a poor shoemaker at Kungsdr, on Lake Malar. In the 
eleventh year of his age he was sent to Stockholm and apprenticed to a scene 
painter, Ahlgrenson, and in 1864 entered a class in the Royal Academy, sup- 
porting himself by illustrating while pursuipg his studies; meanwhile he 
pidnted several pictures representing mythological and historical subjects, 
such as "Asa Thor's Contest with the Giants," "The Finding of Moses," 
and "The Finding of the Body of Gustavus Adolphus." In 1875, for his 
painting " Gustavus Vasa Discovers the Treason of the Bishops," he received 
the Academical prize, the great medal and a traveling stipend extending 
over five years. He made a journey through Sweden, Norway, and CJoth- 
land, on foot, filling his sketch-book with materials for future use. He 
then visited Paris and the principal cities of Germany, settling down at 
Munich as the pupil of Wilhelm Diez. Returning to Paris, he painted im- 
portant works which were exhibited at the Munich International Exhibition 
of 1879. In all of his historical and genre pictures he adhered to the style 
and mannerisms illustrated in the example of his work here exhibited. 



(These two Swedish Bishops had sought refuge after their unsuccessful 
rebellion in Delame, against Gustavus I, with the Archbishop Olaf, in Tron^ 
heim; but the latter treacherously betrayed them to the Kin^e rcrvants. 
who. dressing them in rags, and putting a crown of straw on Sonn&vater'n 
head, and a mitre of birch-bark on Knurs, mounted them on starving horses 
and brought them through Upsala to Stockholm in a Shrove-tide procession,

drinking to the executioner's health, were broken on the wheel). Dacect, 1870

HOGARTH, William. English School 

Bom at London, 1697; died there, 1764. He was apprenticed at an 
early age to a silver plate engraver, and when twenty-three years old set 
up in business on his own account. Amongst other works of the kind he 
engraved twelve plates for Butler's "Hudibras." He entered the school of 
Sir James Thomhill, Serjeant-painter to the king, whose daughter he married 
clandestinely in 1729. The work which first established his fame was the 
series of the "Harlot's Progress," which was immediately followed by the 
"Rake's Progress," now in the Soane Museum. These works are similar in 
scope and design to the "Marriage k la Mode" series purchased from the 
Angerstein collection by the National Gallery, London, 1824. The engrav- 
ings made by Hogarth from these pictures brought him both money and

HOLBEIN, Hans (the Younger). (?) German School 

Bom at Augsburg, probably in the year 1497; died at London « 1543. 
A drawing of the year 1509 is the earliest known work of this painter. 
He was instructed by his father. About 1516 he removed to Basle. The 


works which have been ascribed to him in that city are innumerable. In 
1517 he was called to Lucerne to decorate a house, which was still in existence 
in 1S24; in 1519 he entered the Guild of Painters at Basle, and formed his 
friendship with Boniface Amerbach. Holbein's portrait of this friend is one 
of his very best; the " Fountain of Life," now at Lisbon, in the palace of the 
King of Portugal, was also painted this year. In 1521 he decorated the 
Ratha^ or Town Hall. It was at this time that he painted a portrait of 
Erasmus; a lifensize picture of "Christ lying in the Tomb," and '* Holbein's 
wife and children," representing Franz, the son of the widow Schmid, whom 
he married, and his own son Philip. The mother is a coarse-looking, un- 
attractive woman. It is said that Holbein was driven from Basle by hb 
wife's temper, but that he contributed to her support at all times. 

His "Madonna," at Darmstadt (the better known copy of which is at 
Dresden), is one of the great religious pictures of the world. Soon after its 
completion Holbein went to England, bearing a letter of introduction from 
Erasmus to Sir Thomas More, who at once received him with kindness. 
1527 was the year in which Henry VIII fell in love with Anne Boleyn. This 
was the first year of Holbein's occupation in England, but he does not appear 
to have entered the King's service until after 1530. In the meantime he 
painted Sir Thomas More's family and friends, among them. Archbishop 
Warham and Sir Henry Gilford both fine and important pictures. In 1628 
he painted Sir Thomas and John Godsalve, on the same panel, now at Dresden; 
and the astronomer, Kratzer, now in the Louvre. Holbein returned to 
Basle in 1530, and completed the frescos in the Town House. This being 
done, he returned to England. The superb portrait of George Gyzen, at 
Berlin, was painted in 1532. After 1533 Holbein rarely dated his pictures, 
and there is no authentic portrait by him of Anne Boleyn, or her daughter, 
the Princess Elizabeth, although Holbein painted many portraits of the 
Royal family. 


Wearing a long forked beard, and clad in a black fur-trimmed gown, 
with a black cap on his head, he is standing behind a table covered with 
^reen cloth, on which are an hour glass, a book, and a sheet of paper on which 
IS inscribed in finely formed characters the Latin version of the fifth chapter 
of 2d Corinthians. On the seal is a coat-of-arms, with a Bishop's or Arch- 
bishop's crozier; behind it, the armorial bearings, although somewhat indis- 
tinct from the small size of the seal, are obviously those of Cranmer^ impaling 
the Episcopal Arms of the See of Canterbury. The date, 1539, is painted 
in the left-hand lower comer of the picture. From the collection of Mr. 
Jesse of Bathofam Park, Ruthin, North Wales.

HONDIUS, Abraham. Dutch School 

Bom at Rotterdam, before 1638; died at London, 1695. He lived many 
years in England. His favorite subjects were dogs. He acquired a good 
reputation, but his pictures are open to grave criticism. His drawing is 
incorrect, and his color not pleasing. His veiy rare etchings do him more 
honor as an artist than his paintings. 


Beneath a clear sky in a thickly wooded landscape a wild boar at the 
end of the chase is malcing its last effort to escape. The huntsmen, one 
mounted, the other afoot, are urging the pack of hoimds which surround

lie dead at the feet of the boar.

HOOGSTRATEN, Samuel van. Dutch School 

Bom at Dordrecht, 1627; died there, 1678. He was a pupil of his father, 
Theodore van Hoogstraaten, and afterwards of Rembrandt, at Amsterdam. 
He occasionally painted landscapes and still-life, but his greatest successes 
were in portraits, which he at first executed in the dark and vigorous style 
of Rembrandt, but afterwards changed to a more clear and agreeable manner, 
much to the advantage of his immediate popularity, but not of his permanent

HOVENDEN, Thomas. American School 

Bom at Dunmanway, County Cork, Ireland, December 28, 1840; died, 
1895. Studied in the Cork School of Design. Came to New York in 1863, 
and entered the school of the N.A.D. In 1874 went to Paris, where he 
studied under Cabanel, returning to the United States in 1880. Elected 
A.N.A.. 1881 ; N.A. in 1882. He was also a member of the Philadelphia 
Society of Artists, American Water Color, American Artists' Societies, and 
the Artists' Fund. Mr. Hovenden was run over and instantly killed by a 
railway train while he was endeavoring to save a child, at the town of Ply- 
mouth Meeting, Pa., where he lived. 


A distinguished champion of liberty; bom at Torrington, Conn., in May, 
1800. His father removed to Ohio in 1805. From the age of fifteen to twenty 
he worked at the trade of tanner and currier. According to Redpath, he con- 
ceived in 1839 the idea of becoming a liberator of the Southern slaves. He 
was a devout member of the Congregational Church, and a man of strict moral 
character, imflinching courage, and intense earnestness. He emigrated to 
Kansas in 1855, where he took an active part in the contest with the pro- 
slavery party. In Au^st, 1856, he gained some advantages at Ossawatomie 
over a band of Missounans who had invaded Kansas, and were ten times more 
numerous than his own company. In Maj^ 1859, he called a secret convention 
of the friends of freedom, which met at Uhatham, in Canada, organized an 
invasion of Virginia for the purpose of liberating the slaves, and adopted a con- 
stitution. In the following July he rented a farmhouse aoout six miles from 
Harper's Ferry, and collected there a supply of pikes, guns, etc. On the night 
of October 16, 1859, aided by about twenty men, he surprised Harper's Ferry, 
seized the arsenal and armory, and took over forty prisoners. About noon on 
the 17th the party of Brown was attacked by the Virginia militia. After two 
of his sons and nearly all of his men had been killed, and he himself had been 
wounded in several places, he was captured. "Enemies and friends," says 
Redpath, "were equally amazed at the carriage and sayings of the wounded 
warrior." He was tried in November, and hung at Charleston, Virginia, on 
the 2d of December, 1859. He met his death with serene composure. He was 
twice married, and had twenty children.

Firet Arrival." The "Mmuet," 1880, was purchased by the Count of Fitz- 
kievich. At that time he painted portraits of the Duchesses d'Uz^ and 
de la Tr^mouille, and of many others of the nobility and society of France

mostly of the Vosges district, where he was bom. In the earlier works of 
/an-Monchablon there is a subtle delicacy of treatment and a completeness of 
inish, in which realism is carried to its extremest point; but in his more 
recent productions he retains his deep feeling for nature, and cdms at a broader 
technique, a more intense coloring, and is striving to attam those qualities 
which give to the pictures of the old Dutch masters their peculiar charm.

JORDAENS, Jacob. Flemish School 

Bom at Antwerp, 1593; died there, 1678. Pupil of Adam Van Noort, 
as was Rubens, he became the follower and half assistant of the latter. He 
married early in life the daughter of Van Noort, and never visited Italy. 
He was a master of great power. He painted a variet|y of subjects. 
Many of his sacred pictures are in the churches of Flanders aild Brabant, 
hut they are not his best works. His pictiures vary much, according as he 
was interested or not in his subject. His color was fine, his impasto some- 
what imequal, but he excelled in depth of chiaroscuro, and a " certain 
golden glow," in which he sometimes surpassed even Rubens. The " Ho*'' 
Family,'' in this Gallery, is one of his best sacred pictures. 


In the center of the picture, with one foot resting upon the globe and 
the other upon the head of a seipent, which encircles the world, stands the 
Child Christ, supported by Mary, who extends her right hand to the infant 
St. John^ who is seated upon the back of a lamb. St. Joseph, with one hand 
resting hghtly over the back of a wicker chair, in which is seated St. Anne,

this group stands St. Zacharias and the guardian angle with outspread wings.

The intention of the artist was to express symbolically the idea that 
Christianity has become the triumphant religion of the universe. In the 
middle and extreme distance can be seen the city of Jerusalem with its domes 
and palaces, the crusaders' coveted ^oal; somewhat removed, some soldiers, 
a group of eminent knights, ecclesiastics, bishops, and crusade preachers 
contemplate the city from a hill-top; on another hill to the right can be seen 
the army of crusaders conunanded by Godfrey of Bouillon, who holds uplifted 
in both hands a crown, symborbf the divine right of the Kings of Jerusalem; 
near him are Boemond and Tancredi, soldiers who had distinguished them^ 
selves in the memorable battle the crusaders fought with the Saracens. The 
groimd is covered with the enemy's dead. On the foreground in the middle 
18 Peter of Amiens on his knees, with eyes turned towards the Holy City, 
and offering to God prayers of thanksgiving. Behind him a group of penitents 
are lying on the groimd or scourging themselves; above, borne on clouds, 
is seen the divine apparition of the Redeemer accompanied by the Holy 
Virgin, and surroimaed by the Saints and Martyrs. Godfrey of Bouillon, 
beiuring on his head a crown of thorns, offers the crown of the Holy Land to 
the Saviour, the real King of Jerusalem. Near Peter of Amiens is a group 
of fervent psalmists of the Christian faith, followed by the knights ih magm- 
ficent armor. The troubadour of the middle aees, so closely associated 
with romances of the crusaders, here also finds nis place. The beautiful 
Armida, borne seated on a litter draped with laurel branches, is carried by 
Moors, while her knight, Rinaldo, leads the way to the city, as, pious and 
beautiful, she lifts her gaze to the heavenly apparition.

to a bookseller, but in a few years he was enabled to return to London, where 
he became a student at the Royal Academy (1813) . Although his first pictures 
were meritorious, it was not imtil his return from the Continent, in 1817, that 
he displayed his special talent in the picture of ''Slender, and Anne Page." 


Two yean later he exhibited his ''Sir Roger de Coverley" (Marquis of Lans- 
downe), 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. Return-

July 18, 1868. History painter. Taken to America as a child, by his parents, 
who settled in Philaddphia, where he was first instructed by John A. Smith; 
went in 1841 to Dtlsseldorf, and studied under Lessing; also studied in Munich, 
Venice, and Rome; visited America in 1851, and settled there permanently 
in 1859, living alternately in New York and Washington. Elected N.A. 
in 1860. He was an indefatigable worker. Among the most impoi^tant 
of his works are: "Washington Crossing the Delaware," "Defeat of General 
Braddock," "John Knox and Mary Stuart" (1845), "Maid of Saragossa," 
"Venetian Masqueraders" (1860), "Lafayette in Prison at Olmutz visited

"December 25, 1776, the Commander-in-chiefs headquarters were at 
Newtown, a little village on a small branch of the Neshaming, two miles north- 
east from Bristol. There were about 1,500 Hessians and a troop of British 
light horse at Trenton; these Washington determined to surprise. The posts 
at Mount Holly, Burlington, Black Horse, and Bordentown were to be at- 
tacked, at the same time, by the Pennsylvania militia under Grenerals Cad- 
wallader and Ewin§, the former to cross near Bristol, the latter below Trenton 
Falls; while Washington leading the main body of the Continental troops 
(in all about 2,400 men, and twenty pieces of artillery) was to march down 
upon the enemy at Trenton. Christmas night was selected by Washington 
for the <^ecution of his enterprise. The cold weather of the twenty-four 

hours preceding put serious obstacles in the way. The river was so full of 
floating ice that at first it was doubtful whether a crossing could be effected 
at all. A storm of sleet and snow had just commenced, and the niglit 
became excessively dark and dreary. The perilous voyage began early in 
the evening in boats and bateaux, but it was nearly four in the morning 
before the Sttle army was musterea on the Jersey shore. The victory of the 
Americans at Trenton was complete."

Bom at Leyden in 1494; died there, 1533. Pupil of his father Hugo 
Jacob, and of Comelis Enghelbrechtsen. He was remarkably precocious, 
having etched plates from Ms own designs at the age of 8 or 9 years; at

ship existed between him and Albert Dlirer, which was never interrupted 
by professional jealousy. He painted in oil, distemper, and on glass, suc- 
ceeding equally well in historical subjects, landscape, and portraits. His en- 
gravings on copper gave hun a rank besides his great contemporaries, DUrer 
and Marcantonio. 


In a public scjuare of the city of Jerusalem is a raised scaffold or platform, 
on which the Saviour is seen in a group of six persons, two of whom draw aside 
the purple robe and show Him to the people. In the foreground, groups of 
persons in richly colored costumes fill the street below, witnessing and com- 
menting on the scene. The windows of the houses which surround the square 
are filled with spectators. It was formerly in the possession of Baron Caron- 
delet, Spanish Governor of the province of Louisiana, and was purchased from 
a descendant of the family. It would seem from an ancient document accom- 
panying the picture that it was from the sale of the Prince de Conti, and that it 
IS the original of the picture in the Belvedere Gallery, Vienna, which in the old 
catalogues was attributed to this artist, and in the more recent catalogues is 
called a Copy, There is an old engraving of this picture by Lucas van Leyden 
himself, dated 1510.

MAR ATT A, Carlo. Roman School 

Bom at Camerano, 1625; died at Rome, 1713. (Called also Carluccio 
dalle Madonne, from the large number of Madonna pictures that he painted.) 
Was an imitator of Raphael, and for nearly half a century the most eminent 
painter in Rome. The portrait of a Pope or Cardinal should have come kindly 
to him, for he was in the service of several Popes, and was appointed Superin- 
tendent of the Vatican Chambers by Innocent XI. Clement XI entrusted to 
him the complete restoration of the frescos of Raphael, and gave him the 
insignia of the " Order of Christ" for his labor upon them. He was President 
of the Academy of St. Luke at the time of his death. 


Seated with face and figure three quarters to the left of the spectator, clad

MARCKE, Emile van. French School. 

Bom at Sevres, 1827; died suddenly at Hy^res, 1890, The most dis- 
tinguished pupil of Troyon, whose attention he attracted while employed in 
the porcelain works as a decorator, and through whose influence he began the 
study of nature, and subsequently abandoned the pottery at Sevres for a 
studio in Paris. The influence of Troyon is evident in all of Van Marcke's 
earlier works. But he was a consummate draughtsman, and soon developed 
a style of his own, displaying marked ability and freedom in composition, 
individuality of touch, and a quality of color differing from that of his mas- 
ter. His works sparkle with sunlight, and beneath the showery skies there i:, 
a freshness of verdure replete with the charm of midsummer days. Medals:

'*FRIEDLAND, 1807." 
Extract from the Artisfa Letter to Mr. A. T. Stewart, dated January 27 th^ 1876. 

"I did not intend to paint a battle — I wanted to paint Napoleon at the 
zenith of his glory; I wanted to paint the love, the adoration of the soldiers 
for the great Captain in whom they had faith, and for whom they were ready 
to die. 

" I previoudy had represented, in the picture ' 1814,' the heartrending end 
of the Imperial Dream — ^those men only recently intoxicated with glory, now 
shown exhausted, and no longer beheving in their invincible chief. My 
palette then did not have colors sad enough for the purpose; but to-day, in 
' Friedland, 1807,' wishing everything to appear brilliant at this triumphant 
moment, it seemed to me I was unable to find ccJors sufficiently dazzling. No 
shade should be upon the Imperial face, to take from him the epic character I 
wished to ^ve him. The battle, already commenced, was necessary to add to 
the enthusiasm of the soldiers, and make the subject stand forth, but not to 
diminish it by saddening details. All such shadows I avoided, and presented 
nothing but a dismounted cannon, and some growing wheat which would 
never ripen. 

" This was enough. 

" The men and the Emperor are in the presence of each other. The soldiers 
cry to him that they are his, and the impressive Chief, whose Imperial will 
directs the masses that move around, salutes his devoted army. He and they 
plainly comprehend each other, and absolute confidence is expressed in every 

" Such was the idea as it leaped from my brain the first instant when I em- 
bodied the picture in thought; and which, in spite of the long time I have 
taken to put it on canvas, has always remained with me so clear and plain that 
I have never in any manner modified it.'' 

"Friedland, 1807" was sold at auction at the sale of the Stewart Collec- 
tion, March 25, 1887, and purchased by Judge Henry Hilton for $66,000, and 
by him given to the Museum in 1887. 

Napoleon mounted on his famous white horse and surrounded by his 
generals and aides is upon a slight eminence in the center of the picture. In 
wild enthusiasm the Cuirassiers are charging before him through a field of 
unripe wheat, every soldier rising in his stirrups and shouting "Vive I'Em- 
pereur" as he raises his sword flashing in the light of a midday sun. The bat- 
tle rages in the distance and above is a clear blue sky with light floating clouds.

Bom at Leyden, towards 1630 ; died at Amsterdam, 1667. The gentleman-

him to have been a man of a naturally delicate frame and of a sensitive mind ; he 
unquestionably formed his style from the study of works by such distinguished 
men as Gerard Dou, Frans Van Mieris, Terburg, and Jan Steen, who were all 
superior to him in invention and the delineation of character; but Metsu 
obtained a grace of expression and an elegance in demeanor wliich left him 
without a rival in the old Dutch School.

Bom, according to the Eoyal Museum of Belgium, at Louvain, Belgium, 
1466; died at Antwerp, 1530; the National Gallery and the Louvre have

was a blacksmith, and, it is said, became a painter for the sake of an artist's 
daughter, whom he loved, and whose father was determined she should 
marry none but a painter. Metsys, the first of the great Antwerp painters, 
was the last who remained faithful to the traditions of the early Flemish 
School. His most important work was an altar-piece in three parts, now in 
the Museum of Antwerp. " The Misers," at Windsor Castle, is a notable work 
by this Master. His pictures are seen in all large European Galleries. He 
is buried in front of the Cathedral in Antwerp, and the inamediate spot is 
marked with the simple inscription, " M. Q. M., obiit 1529."

MORONI, Giovanni Battista. Venetian School. Berenson attributes 
this picture to Savoldo. 

Bom at Bondio, near Albino, Province of Bergamo, about 1520; died at 
Bergamo, 1578. Pupil of Alessandro Bonvicino called II Moretto. Giovanni 
Battista Moroni was a painter without honor in his own country, and when 
the people from Bergamo came to Titian to be painted, he used to refer them 
to their own countrjrman. No better face painter, he would tell them, ex- 
isted. Mofoni was not a poet in the true sense of the word, but a consum- 
mate painter. Yet, now and then, he surpassed himself and pierced the 
surface till he reached the soul of the sitter. 


Standing, half-length, nearly front view, he is gloved, and clad in a fur- 
trimmed coat, in his left hand is an open letter.

MOSTERT (or Mostaert), Jan. DiUch School 

Bom at Haarlem, 1474; died there, 1555. Pupil of Jacob Janszen van 
Haarlem. He was for eighteen years painter to Margaret of Austria, Regent of 
the Netherlands, and during that period resided at the Court, to which he 
was attached also as a Gentleman. Mostert paid much attention to landscape 
and was also a good portrait painter; his ecclesiastical works have mostly per- 
ished, but a very delicate picture ascribed to him of the Virgin, with smaller 
representations of her seven sorrows, is still preserved in the church of N6tre- 
Dame at Bruges, but no known picture bears the signature of Mostert. The 
Antwerp Museum has three, the Vienna & Brussels Galleries have one each, 
and the Old Pinakothek, Munich, has three pictures by this artist. The 
National Gallery in London has a ''Virgin and Child in a Garden" conjectur- 
ally assigned to him, as is the" Ecce Homo — Mater Dolorosa" in this Museum. 


Life-size, three-quarter length. Both figures are standing in a highly- 
ornate Gothic window with a double arch. The Saviour is at the left, witn 
the crown of thorns pressed upon His brow; from which the blood trickles 
down over His pale face, which is profoundly eloquent in its expression of 
resignation. His hands are bound with a cord, and in the right He holds 
the reed. A dark green mantle, tied in a knot at the breast, covers the 
shoulders and falls at each side of the figure. The sorrowing Mother is at 
the right with bowed head, and hands across her breast; the delicate pale 
face, with its exquisite expression of the most profound grief, is framed m a 
white head-dress severe in its lines but chaste and pure in color. A dark 
green mantle falls from the head and envelopes Her figure. In the back- 
ground are highly ornate buildings which, with a distant hill and blue moim- 
tains, are seen beneath the arch of the window. A scourge is attached to the 
marble column which separates the figures.

Painted to order for the late A. T. Stewart, Esq. At the request of 
Emperor William, was exhibited in Berlin before being sent to this country. 
The large painting now in the Munich Gallery was painted subsequently to the 

The following description is by the artist himself: 

The Emperor Tibenus, surrounded by his Courtiers (Favorites, Coun- 
cilors, Lictors, Senators, and Roman Women), has taken his place upon » 


tribune under a spread oanopjr, in order that the triumphal prooes^on of 
Gennanicus may pass before mm. 

Germanicus appears in the background upon a triumphal car^ accom- 
panied by his five sons, surrounded by Trophies of Victory, and is ereeted by 
the applause and acclamations of the people, who are to be seen at the Arch of 

In front of the car, reaching from the middle distance to the foreground 
of the picture, are the German captives being led in chains. As prmcipal 
figure in l^is group and of the picture, walks Thusnelda, in the costume of the 
C^rmans, with her son, Tumehcus (a child of three years), accompanied by a 
nurse anjd an attendant. Before her is the priest, Libes, coupl^ (cliained) 
together with warriors, escorted by Roman soldiers. Behind Thusnelda are to 
be seen her brothers, leaders of the Cherusci, chained together, with bears, 
etc., etc. The foregroimd to the left is occupied by the populace of Rome, who 
mock and insult Thusnelda. 

Thusnelda having been forcibly carried away from her husband, Armin- 
ius, a German Prince, oy her father Segestes, was, from reasons which appeared 
to him advantageous for his own personal interests and the condition of the 
Germans, betrayed and deUvered into the hands of the Romans. 

In the picture, Tiberius has selected Segestes to stand before the step» of 
his throne, and has forced him to witness the shame of his own daughter: ne is 
mocked by the Senators sitting near him, as they point to the prisoners below. 

Strabo describes, as an eye-witness, this event; he, as well as Tacitus, 
although Romans, express plainly their sympathy for the devotion and love of 
country exhibitea by Thusnelda, whose personality will ever be a poetical 
subject for an artist.

PINE, Robert Edge. English School 

Bom at London, 1742; died at Philadelphia, 1790. He was the son 
of Mr. John Pine, the engraver, and was established in London as early as 
1761-62. For his picture ''The Surrender of Calais," 1760, he received the 
first prize of one hundred guineas from the Society for the Encouragement of 
Art. In 1762 he obtained the first prize for "Canute on the Sea Shore, Re- 
proving his Courtiers for Flattery." In 1772 he went to Bath, remaining until 
1779, when he returned to Loi^ion. In 1784 he came to America, settling in 
Philadelphia with the avowed object of painting the distinguished persons and 
events of our Revolution, but met with so little encouragement that he 
devoted his time to portrait painting. His first portrait was that of the Hon. 
Francis Hopkinson, and bears the date of 1785. Washington, in a note dated 
Mount Vernon, 16th of May, 1785, to the Hon. Francis Hopkinson, consents to 
give sittmgs to Pine for a portrait, to be introduced with other .people of dis- 
tinction in a large historical picture, contemplated by the artist. But his ideal 
was never realized, as he died, without having made much progress with 
his collection of material for his grand historical picture. He was small of 
stature, and morbidly irritable. After his death his wife and children opened 
a school, but soon returned to England.

PIOMBO» Fra Sebastiano deL (Real name Sebastiano Lu- 

ciani. ) Venetian School. 

Bom at Venice, 1485; died at Rome, 1547. Sebastiano Luciani, called 
del Piombo, from his holding the office of Keeper of the Lead^i Seal, was 
originally a painter and musician at Venice, where he studied successively under 
Bellini and Giorgione. His portraits in oil had won him fame before he was 
invited to Rome by the famous banker, Agostino Chigi, in 1512. At this 
time the papal court was divided into two strong parties, one led by Raphael, 
the other by Michelangelo, and the latter, feeling his own defects as a oolorist, 
courted Sebastiano, in hope that, by uniting Venetian color with his own grand 
design, Raphael could be outdone. When Cardinal Giulio de Medici com- 
missioned Raphael to paint the ''Transfiguration," he also conmiissioned 
del Piombo to paint ** Raising of Lazarus,'^ now in the National GaUeiy, Lon- 
don. The pictures, when finished, were exhibited side by side.

POLLAJUOLO, Antonio deL Florentine School 

Bom at Florence, 1429; died at Rome, 1498. Antonio and his brother 
Pietro were workers in bronze and silver ornaments, and also painters. It is 
said that Antonio was the first artist who dissected the human body in order 
to know how to represent it. Their most excellent productions represented 
contests of strength and muscular action, such as '^ Hercules and Hydra/' and 
the '' Death of AntsBus.^' In painting, their model was Andrea del Castagno. 
Their masterpiece is, without doubt, " St. Sebastian," in the National Gallery.

POUSSIN, Nicolas. French School 

Bom at Villeres, District of les Andelys, Normandy, 1594, died at Rome 
1665. History and landscape painter. Pupil of Quentin Varin in Andelys, 
and of Ne5l, Jouvenet, Ferdinand Elle, and Lallemont, in Paris. Went to 
Rome in 1624, where he studied with Duquesnay; married the daughter of 


Jacques Dughet, and adopted his two sons, Jean and Gas^ard, the latter took 
his name and afterwards rivalled him in fame as a painter. 

In 1640, Louis XIII sent M. de Chanteloup to bring him back to France. 
Although the King made him his first painter, and show^^ honors upon him, 
Pousain found his position so intolerable on account of the jealous intrigues of 
Vouet, Fouqui^res, and Mercier that he returned to Rome on leave of absence. 
The death of Cardinal Richelieu, in 1642, and of the King in the following year, 
left him free to remain in Rome the remainder of his life. 

His noble style, his skill in composition, his elegance in the grouping and 
disposition of figures, and his truly grand and poetic feeling in landscape, 
entitle him to the first place among painters of the French schooL

Bom at Philadelphia, September 23, 1734; died in his native city, Janu-

poole, whose works unfortunately cannot be identified; that he possessed no 
inconsiderable skill and knowledge in his profession is attested by the thorough 
grounding of his pupil. Pratt, after doing considerable work in Philadelphia, 
sailed for London, in Jime, 1764, accompanying Miss Shewell (whose uncle 
had married Pratt's aunt), and on September 2, 1764, he gave her in marriage 
to the future President of the Royal Academy. After a residence of two years 
and a half with West, in London, whose first American pupil he was, he spent 
eighteen months in Bristol, and shortly after returned to Philadelphia, where 
he set up his easel in the spring of 1768. In 1770, he made a brief visit to Ire- 
land, and painted several important pictures, among which was a whole length 


portrait of Archdeacon Isaac Mann, in his robes, which was exhibited in Dublin 
at the Irish Academy. He passed a portion of the year 1772 in New York, 
during which time he painted a full-length portrait of Cadwalader Golden for 
the Chamber of Commerce, which is still in possession of that body. About the 
same period he painted the portraits of several members of the Walton family. 
His portrait of West and wife are in the Pwmsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, 
Philadelphia, and that city also boasts of the earliest authenticated likeness of 
the great American philosopher, Franklin, which is his work. 


This interesting picture represents West's painting room in London. To 
the left, Westj with nat on, stands by Pratt, correcting a drawing. At the 
right of the painting, with palette and brushes in hand, is another student who 
has turned to listen to the words of the master. In the center are two younger 
students, one of whom is supposed to be Abraham Delanoy, of New York, wo 
was studying with West at that time, and whoseportrait by West was recently 
in the possession of the De Peyster family. The picture was exhibited by 
Pratt, at the Old Spring Gardens, in London, in 1766, under the title still 

This picture shows Pratt to have been an artist of no ordinary ability, as 
it is a remarkable composition to have been executed at so early a day by an 
American artist, and its color, scheme, and detail are worthy of special notice.

REMBRANDT VAN RIJN (Rembrandt Harmensz Van 

Rijn). Dutch School 

Bom at Leyden, July 15, 1606. Buried in the Westerkerk (Church of 
the West) at Amsterdam, October 8, 1669. He was the son of a pros- 
perous miller of Leyden whose ambition was to see him in one of the learned 
professions. But the boy's love for art overcame aU difficulties and oppo- 
sitions, and he entered the studio of Van Swanenburg as a pupil, and 
later that of Pieter Lastman. The bold strong features of old age had a fas- 
cination for Rembrandt, the bold markings, broad planes, and vigorous lines 
easily gave him that clue to a mastery of expression which is so characteristic 
of all his works. In 1631 he opened a studio in Amsterdam, and resided 
there until his death. In 1634 he married Saskia Van Uylenborch, whose 
fair face and form are seen in many of his portraits, biblical and historical 
pictures. For eight years fortune smiled upon him; his studio was crowded 
with pupils and he had patronage far beyond his needs. But Saskia died 
in 1642 and a gloom was cast over the life of the young painter. In the 
development of his art he left not only the impress of his own individuality 
upon each work by his hand, but recorded the characteristics of the peo- 
ple among whom he Uved with a vigor and vital force which has never been 
equaled and is well illustrated in his portrait groups, especially that of the 
Sjrndics in the Rycks Museum at Amsterdam. In 1650, Hendrikje StofPels, 
a beautiful young girl from the country, came to live in his home as house- 
keeper, where she remained during the remainder of his Ufe the devoted and 
loving friend, watching over, and caring for him tenderly during his last 
days of poverty and misfortune until the end came. Unfortimately, Rem- 
brandt had been too lavish in his expenditures, fashion changed and under the 
influence of French tastes for the lighter, smoother, and more elegant and 
decorative pictures, Rembrandt was neglected and his more robust art found 
little favor; debts accmnulated, commissions were few, and at last he was 
declared a bankrupt and his whole e£fects were sold by auction. But the 
artist knew his powers, and the most splendid achievements of his life were 
accomplished when he waa in direst poverty and extreme want. 


A man about forty years of age wearing a high crown, broad brim, black

vites acquaintance. The left hand partially concealed by his dress and a 
lace ruff at the wrist are seen in shadow at the bottom of the canvas.

A sombre landscape of a warm, brownish tone, heavy with rain, the dull 
gray clouds are reflected in the waters of the canal, and hang over the distant 
landscape, shadowing almost to obscurity the long line of mills that border 
the artificial stream. But the old red mill, which stands in the foreground 
with its tiled roof, massive walls, and archea gateway, the moving figures, the 
quay, and the boats which drift upon the waters of the canal, are in a perpetual 


golden glow, despite the heavy atmosphere of the low lands of Holland. " The 
old mill, in which Rembrandt was bom," is inscribed upon the back of this

REYNOLDS, Sir Joshua, P.R.A. English School 

First President of the Royal Academy. Bom in Devonshire, at Plympton 
Earl 1723, where his father was a schoolmaster. Died at London, 1792. 
**Done by Joshua out of pure idleness," wrote his father over a drawing which 
the boy had done in his exercise-book. '* While I am doing this," wrote 
Joshua himself of his drawing, a few years later, " I am the happiest creature 
alive." When He was eighteen he was sent to London to study under Hudson. 
After two years he had made such good progress as to estrange his master. 
After a year spent at Plymouth he went to London again; but upon his 
father's death he returned, in 1746, to Plymouth, where he won the friend- 
ship of Lord Edgcumbe, who introduced him to Captain Keppel, who 
offered to take him to Italy on board his own ship, the "Centurion." In 
May, 1749, they set sail, and till the end of the year Reynolds stayed with the 
Governor of Minorca, painting portraits. For two years he studied in 
Rome. From Rome he went to Parma, Florence, and Venice. At Parma 
he came under Correggio's influence; at Venice he studied Titian. "To 
possess a real, fine picture by that great master," he once said, "I would will- 
ingly ruin myself." 

Reynolds returned to London in 1752. He settled first in St. Martin's 
Lane; afterwards in Great Newport Street, and finally (from 1760 onward) 
in Leicester Square, where his house (No. 47) may still be seen — ^nearly oppo- 
site to the site of Hogarth's. From this time forward Reynold's life was one 
unbroken success. Other painters arose from time to time to divide his popu- 
larity. Opie, Gainsborough, and Hoppner; but Reynolds' supremacy was 
never seriously threatened. In 1768, when the Royal Academy was founded, 
he was elected President by acclamation, and was knighted by the king — an 
honor which has ever since been offered to the holder of that office.

ROUSSEAU, Pierre Etienne Thiodore. Barbizan School 

Bom at Paris, April 15, 1812; died at Barbizon, near Fontainebleau, 
December 22, 1867. Landscape painter; pupil of R^mond (1826) and of 
Lethi^re. Showed himself a true ''naturalist'' in his first picture (1826), and 
up to 1848 — ^when his works, after being for thirteen years excluded from the 
Salon by the Academical Jury, then abolished, were readmitted — fought the 
battle of natiualism with varying success, and foimded the modem French 
school of landscape painting, of which he was one of the chief glories. Albert 
Wolfe said of Rousseau: ''He occupied the highest place, because he was the 
most perfect master. The grand aspect of landscape and its tenderness are 
equally familiar to him. He renders with the same mastery the smile of 
creation and its terrors, the broad open plain and the mysterious forest; the 
limpid, sunbright sky or the heaping of the clouds put to flight by storms; 
the terrible aspect of landscape or those replete with grace. He has under- 
stood all, rendered all, wit^ equal genius. The great contemporary painters 
have each a particular stamp, Corot painting the grace; Millet the hidden 
voice; Jules Dupr^, the majestic strength. Theodore Rousseau has been by 
turns as much a poet as Corot, as melancholy as Millet, as awful as Dupr^; he 
is the most complete, for he embraces landscape art absolutely.''

RUBENS, Peter Paul. Flemish School 

Bom at Si^en, June 28, 1577, baptized (the day after his birth) on 
the festival of Saints Peter and Paul (hence his Christian name), is the chief 
glory of the Flemish school, and one of the great masters of tile world. This 
remarkable man, scholar, painter and diplomatist, was descended from two 
good families. His father, Jan Rubens, was an Alderman of Antwerp, and 
his mother, Maria Pypelinckx, belonged to a distinguished family of the 
same city. Rubens' talent for drawing early led him to decide upon paint- 
ing as a profession. He entered the school of Adam Van Noort, with whom he 
remained four years. Another four years was passed in the studio of Otto 
or Otho Vaenius, whose cultivation of mind and taste was of more advan- 
tage to Rubens than his instruction in painting. In 1598 he was admitted 
to the Guild of Painters in Antwerp; his father had died, and his mother 
had returned to that city. In 1600 he went to Venice and studied the 
works of Titian and Paul Veronese. For eight years Rubens was in the 
service of the Duke of Mantua. An excellent Latin scholar, he was also 
proficient in French, Italian, English, German, and Dutch. These gifts pro- 
cured him diplomatic employment. In 1603 he was sent on a mission to 
Spain. In 1608 news of his mother's iUness reached him, and he hastened 
home, when he was appointed Coiui; painter to the Archduke Albert, then 
Governor of the Netherlands. In 1622 he visited Paris at the invitation of 
Marie de' Medici (a sister of the Duchess of Mantua). In 1628 he was sent on 
a mission to Philip IV of Spain, and in the following year he was sent to 
Charles I of England. Here he was knighted, and was given an honorary 
degree by the University of Cambridge. But wherever he went, Rubens con- 
tinued to paint, and his diplomacy he considered as a mere recreation. ''The 
painter Rubens," he is reported to have said of himself, ''amuses himself with 
being ambassador." How hard he labored is known by the enormous number 
of his works — between 2,000 and 3,000. In 1609 Rubens married his first wife, 
Isabella Brant, who died in 1626, leaving two sons, to whom Gevartius was 
tutor. It was in 1630 that he married Helena Fourment, who was at that 
time but sixteen years old. She bore him five children, survived him, and 
married again. Both his wives so often served him for models that their 
forms and faces are familiar to the world. He died May 30, 1640, and was 
buried in his private chapel in the Church of St. Jacques, at Antwerp, which 
is decorated with a magnificent work of his own. 


This admirable picture was painted for the Church of the Jesuits at Ant- 
werp prior to 1620, after Rubens' return from Italy, and before he had called in 
the aid of assistants. It was done immediately after finishing the famous 


"Crucifixion *' in the Cathedral of Antwerp, and before the execution of its com- 
panion picture, that other masterpiece, ** The Descent from the Cross;" or, in 
other words, at the period when this prince of painters produced his greatest 
works. Grandeur of sUrle and power of coloring are equally the characteristics 
of "The Return from Egypt." Reference is made to it in the catalogue of a 
sale, May 20, 1777, of the pictures tiikon from churches and convents of the 
Jesuits, at Antwerp^suppressed by the decree of the Emperor Joseph II: * * Re- 
turn from Egypt. The Infant Jesus, the Holy Virgin, and St. Joseph. The 
Eternal Father is seen in the upper part of the picture, enveloped in clouds. 
Well grouped. Painted on wood. H., 7 ft. 9 in. ; B., 5 ft. 4 in." It was bought 
at this sale by the rich banker Dannoot, and is thus described in the catalogue of 
the Dannoot sale (page 27, No. 61), held at Brussels in 1829, when it was bought 
by Mr. Buchanan, one of the most skillful London en>ert8: ''The Return from 
Egypt. The Holy Virgin and St. Jos^h hold by the hand the Redeemer of 
the World. The mother looks with solicitude on the Divine Infant. The 
Child raises His eyes to her, and seems to announce to her a happier destiny. 
The Father from heaven contemplates this scene with tenoemess. An 
admirable picture, well composed, and painted with decision. It cannot be 
seen without exciting a sentiment of respect and devotion." It is also men- 
tioned in Smith's Cataloj^ue, Vol. 2, page 21, No. 71. Smith's description is 
from Bolswert's engraving, where the engraver has introduced the Holy 
Spirit, and an aureole around the head of St. Joseph, which never existed in 
the original; and is described in the Life of P. P. Rubens, by I. F. Michel, 
Brussels, 1771 : "At the end of the small nave at the right is another piece by 
the same master, representing the Virgin and St. Joseph leading the Infant 
Jesus by the hand. Although the composition is unpretentious, the feeling in 
the heads and the beauty of the flesh tints cause it to be much admired." It 
is also mentioned in all the other guide-books for amateurs in Belgium, etc., 
and in the " Histoire de P. P. Rubens," by Andrew Van Hasselt, page 248, 
No. 214, and in the '' Dictionary of Painters," by A. Siret, page 787, 2d edition. 
This picture was transferred from wood to canvas between 1879 and 1882 and 
was seriously injured at that time in an attempt at restoration.

of a deeper tone which is folded across her lap: from underneath, the white 
drapery falls to her feet. Her left arm is extended and rests grac^ully on the 
folds of a dark green mantle which has been laid over the back of her seat. 
The Infant Christ standing upon His mother's knee, with one arm thrown 
about Her neck and the other extended downwards, turns His head in loving 
greeting to St. John. Behind the Mother and Child is St. Elizabeth, her right 
hand gently touching the Infant's arm, and above, at the right, St. Joseph 
contemplates the scene. At the left of the composition, St. Francis d'Assisi 
in the brown habit of the Franciscan order with his arms crossed over hi^ 
breast, bends forward with an expression of rapt devotion. At his feet is the 


Lamb. Beyond, a background of glowing color, brilliant cumulus clouds 
streaked with crimson at the horizon, a tree with luxuriant foliage, a build- 
ing in the middle distance, and an architectural ruin in the foreground, 
complete the composition.

It is a tradition that the Persian king, Cambyses, caused an \mjust and 
prevaricating judge to be skinned alive, and then appointed his son to fill the 
chair made vacant by the death of his father, and obliged him to sit upon a 
cushion made of his father's skin. Over the judge's seat the painter has dis- 
played the face and hands of the victim. A finished study for the painting 
made for the Ma^strates' Hall at the city of Brussels, and Which was destroyed 
in the conflagration caused by the bombardment in 1695.

SCHEFFER, Ary. French School. 

Bom at Dordrecht, Feb. 10, 1795; died at Argenteuil, Jun« 15, 183^, 
History and portrait painter; son of Johann Baptist Scheffer; pupil of 
Gu^rin. Sympathizing neither with the classic school represented by his 
master, nor the romantic led by G^ricault and Delacroix, Scheffer took up a 
class of subjects which showed his sympathy with the cause of freedom, such 
as the Suliote women, an episode of the Greek war, and the Battle of Morat. 
Influenced by Ingres, he sought and obtained greater purity of form, and 
painted subjects from Goethe and Byron. In 1836 he was appointed art 
instructor to the Orl^ns family, and directed the studies of Princess Marie 
in sculpture. In 1836 he accompanied the Due d'Orl^ns and General Bau- 
brand, whose widow he afterwards married, to the siege of Antwerp, and after 
his return painted several military episodes for Versailles. Between 1835 and 
1848 he produced his greatest works, the "Christus CJonsolator and Judex," 
the "Francesca" and the "Mignon." When the Revolution broke out, 
Scheffer assisted the King and his family in their escape from Paris, and then 
went to Holland and England for rest. The coup cPitat of 1852, which gave 
Louis Napoleon the throne, was a blow to his hopes which finally disgusted him 
with politics, from which he withdrew altogether. Five years later, after a last 
visit to England, he lost his friends Manin and the Duchesse d'Orl^ns, to 
whom he was much attached. After attending the funeral of the latter, he 
returned much broken to France, and shortly after died.

favor, but having in the United States many personal friends and acquaint- 
ances whom he thought would be gratified to see a good portrait of him, 
cheerfully consented to sit; and taking from his table a number of sketches 
made of himself, he selected one having in the background Chimborazo, and 
said, ** 1 will be painted sitting here,'' designating the spot with Chimborazo 
in the distance. The artist commenced the picture at once, and at its com- 
pletion the Baron expressed himself as delighted with it. This was the last

SHEE, Sir Martin Archer. English School 

Bom at Dublin, 1769; died at Brighton, 1850. He came from an old 
Irish family, and it was Burke who introduced him, when he came from Dublin 
to London in 1789, to Reynolds. His own suavity and good manners were 
even better introductions to the portrait painter's clientele, and he soon met 
with distinguished patrons. In 1789 he was elected A.R.A.^ and having mar^ 


ried, moved into Romney*s old house in Caven^Gsh Square. In 1800 he be- 
came R.A., and upon the death of Sir Thomas Lawrence, in 1830, he was 
elected to the presidency of the Royal Academy. In 1805 he published a 
volume of verse (followed in 1809 and 1814 by others), which called fortii 
praise from Byron in his ''English Bards and Scotch Reviewers": 

*' And here let Shoe and geniua find a place. 
Whose pen and pencil srield an equal crace: 
While honors, doubly merited « attend 
The poet's rival, but the painter's friend."

STEEN, Jan Havicksz. Dutch School 

Bom at Leyden about 1626; died there, 1679. He loved a jovial, roister-

that in his half drunken state he could have executed two hundred works of so 
much merit. He studied first with Nicholas Knupfer, and Van Goyen, whose 
daughter he married in 1649, and developed under the influence of Frans Hals 
and Adrian Van Ostade. He was fond of r^resenting the hiunorous and 
ludicrous scenes incident to the life which he led, degenerating often into 
vulgarity. His pictures may be seen in neariy all of the large Continental

STUART, Gilbert. Am^erican School 

Bom at Narragansett, Rhode Island, December 3, 1755; died Boston, 
July 27, 1828. After some unaided efforts he received instruction from 
Cosmo Alexander, a Scotch portrait painter, whom he accompanied to Scot- 
land in 1772. The death of his master left Stuart to shift for himself, and 
after struggling a while at the University of Glasgow, he returned home. In 
1775 he went again to England, where he found a friend in Benjamin "West, 
whose studio he entered as a pupil, but soon became an assistant to his master. 
In 1785 he set up a studio of his own in London, achieving marked popularity 
and financial success. He visited Ireland in 1788, where he was received with 
great favor, and painted the portraits of many distinguished persons, and 
returned to America in 1792. Soon after his arrival in New York the Duke of 
Kent offered to send a ship of war for him if he would go to Nova Scotia and 
paint his portrait, but he declined the offer. Among his sitters in Europe 
were three Kings: Louis XVI, George III, and George IV while Prince of 
Wales. He painted also Alderman Boydell, John Kemble, Sir Joshua Rey- 
nolds, Benjamin West, and many other distinguished artists. Six 


of the United States sat to him for their portraits, viz.: George Washingtoiv, 
John Adapis, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, and John 
Quincy Adams. After working two years in New York, Philadelphia, and 
Washington, Stuart settled in Boston, where he resided the remainder of his 
life. Stuart was gifted with a perception which enabled him to select the true 
lines of thought and character of his sitter, which he rendered without hesits^ 
tion. A collection of two hundred and fifteen of his works was exhibited in 
the Boston Athenseim:! soon after his decease, for the benefit of his family, 
which realized a considerable sum.

parents, who were comedians, in 1792; was first instructed by M. Belzons, a 
French miniature painter, in Richmond, Va., and painted there, and at, Nor- 
folk until his brother Lawrence's death, in 1804. In 1806, having married his 
brother's widow, he removed to New York, and lived there, excepting a short 
visit to Boston for instruction from Gilbert Stuart, until 1808, when he 
removed to Philadelphia. In 1809 he went to London, studied several 
months under Benjamin West, and coming back in 1810, settled permanently 
in Philadelphia. He again visited England in 1837-38, and in the latter year 
painted from life a portrait of Queen Victoria, from which he painted a full- 
length portrait of this Queen arrayed in robes of state. Between 1820 and 
1840, he exhibited ten portraits at the Royal Academy.

Guild in lfi06; painted chiefiy peasant scenes, but occasionally biblical and

Before this picture came into the possession of the Museum, the beef, 
which is now seen suspended at the right, was completely obliterated by a 
dark-gray cloth and other objects, which had been pidnted over it in an 
attempt to conceal or repair an injury to the canvas. The painting has 
recently been cleaned ana these objects removed, leaving the composition 
the same as when the picture left the easel of the artist.

dressed beef is suspended with a bowl beneath to catch the drippings; be- 
liind a man and a woman are eneaped in conversation. In the center above

waist, white apron, and dark green skirt, stands by an open weU with an 
earthen pitcher resting on the curb. She is surrounded with kitchen uten- 
nls, a shming brass kettle, jars, and a small table, covered with vegetables. 
A white spotted dog stands in the near foregroimd, and a bright red liver, 


which hangs from a beam near the nuddle center of the picture, strikes a 
high color note.

TENIERS, David (the Younger). Flemish School. 

Bom at Antwerp, 1610; died at Perck, near Brussels, 1690. The most 
eminent genre painter of Belgiiun. He was instAicted by his father, but 
was very much influenced by Rubens. His first wife was the daughter 
of Jan Brueghel, and the second, Isabelle de Fren, a daughter of the Secre- 
tary of State for Brabant. He was much favored by the Archduke Leopold 
William, and by Don Juan, of Austria; he excelled in representations of the 
alchemist, fairs, and festivals of all sorts. His touch was light and brilliant, 
his coloring exquisitely beautiful. 

Teniers, though a Fleming by birth, belongs rather to the Dutch schod 
in style, being one of the principal genre painters, of whom most of the other 
leadbig masters are Dutch. The place of Teniers in art history is that he 
was jMT excellence the painter of the pleasinres of the ale-house and card- 
table. He was refined in person, enjoyed the highest patronage, and was 
the friend of courtiers and princes. Yet he remained throughout his life 
the painter of the pot-house. 


The foreground is occupied with peasants who are dancing to the music 
of a bagpipe. At the right and behind under the trees a multitude of people, 
in hilanous enjoyment of the wedding feast, are seated at tables which ex- 
tend to the door of the farm-house. In the middle distance at the left two 
men are quarreling and friends of each are seen cominjg to the rescue. Public 
buildings and a church-spire rise from the village in the distance into a 
sunny evening sky. '

an individual feeling in first exhibited works, 1836. A visit to Holland » 
in 1847 revealed to Troyon his true mission, that of an animal painter. His 
great technical skiU and inexhaustible resoiu'ces as a colorist, and other 
rare endowments, enabled him to grapple with all the varying moods and 
effects of nature, and in this new line of cattle and landscape painter he 
soon became illustrious. Medals: third class, 1838; second class, 1840; 
first class, 1846, 1848, 1855; Legion of Honor, 1849. Member of the Amster- 
dam Academy. Diploma to the Memory of Deceased Artists, Exposition 
UniverseUe, 1878.

TRUMBULL, Col. John. American School 

Bom at Lebanon, Conn., Jime 6, 1756; died, New York, November 10, 
1843. History and portrait painter. Served in the War of Independence, 
in 1775, as aide-de-camp to Washington, and in 1776 as deputy Adjutant- 
General under Gates; retired from service in 1777 with rank of Colonel. 
Went to London in 1780 to study under Benjamin West, but was imprisoned 
eight months, and returned home in 1782; went again on the conclusion 
of peace, and resumed his studies. His "Battle of Bunker Hill" (1786, 
engraved by J. G. MUller) was the first of a series of historical works illus- 
trating the war of the Revolution. It was followed by the "Death of Mont- 


gomeiy'' (engraved bj F. Clements), and the ''Sortie from Gibraltar'* 
(•Dgraved bj Sharp). Returned to Anterica in 1789, accompanied Mr. 
Jay to England in 1794 as Secretary of L^ation, and was engaged several 
years in diplomatic work; painted in England in 180S-15, and was engaged 
in 1817-24 in painting four pictures for the rotunda of the Ci^itol at Wash- 
ington, for which he received $32,000. Trumbull was president of the '

TURNER, Joseph Mallord William. English School 

Bom in Maiden Lane, Covent Garden, London, 1775; died, 1851. He 
was the son of a barber, and his father intended him for his own profession. 
Of his earlier sketches, made in pencil and india ink when he was a boy, a 
large proportion consists of careful studies of stranded boats, and different 
parts of old Dutch shipping. He hired himself out every evening to wash 
in skies in india ink in other people's drawings, at half a crown a night, get- 
ting his supper into the bargain. It was in water color that Turner first 
painted. By 1789 he began to paint in oils, and this great genius, who now 
holds the first place in English landsc£4)e art, entered the Royal Academy 
as a student at the age of thirteen, and under the prevailing influence of th^ 
day studied the works of Claude Lorrain, the Foussins, Salvator Rosa, and 
other classical painters. A close observer and diligent student, nature 
early revealed to his mind an illimitable source of glorious truths, which 
left no room for influences, methods, or conceits, other than those which 
his unerring accuracy of perception led him to formulate for the perfect 
rendering of material loveliness with imrivaled precision. Rui&in says: 
''The great distinctive passion of Turner's nature — that which separates 
him from all other modem landscape painters — ^is his sympathy with sorrow, 
deepened by his continual sense of the power of death. Colossal in power, 
he was also tender and delicate in harmony of tint and subtlety of drawing. 
He had a perfect grasp of English scenery, and shrank from no labor in 
ezpresnng details. His Yorkshire drawings are peculiariy rich and varied 
In composition, the rock and hill forms being marvelously accurate, while 


his skies and effects of mist are exquisitely rendered. Glorious in conception 
— ^unfathomable in knowledge — solitary in power — ^with the elements waiting 
upon his will, and the night and morning obedient to his call, sent as a prophet 
of God to reveal to men the mysteries of a universe; standing like the great 
angel of the Apocalypse, clothed with a cloud, and with a rainbow upon his 
head, and with the sun and stars given into his hand.'' 


The river Tamar in the foreground, with a barge at a dock onr the left, 
and on the right a boat half drawn on shore. A large building extends across 
the canvas baring the sign '^ Beer House;'' on the wall at the right is scrawled,

enUvened hy groups of men, women, sailors, and horses. Painted about 
1812-14. !rurchased in 1851 by John Miller, of Liverpool, for' 300 guineas. 
A letter from John Ruskin, dated November 22, 1852, says: **I once bid 
up to £300 for it, but it went higher, and I had no more to give." Mr. 
Miller exhibited it at Manchester in 1857, and at his sale in 1858 it was bought 
in at £430 by his daughter, who exhibited it in 1885 at the Royal Academy.

life; poverty and discouragement oppressed him, and the autumn of 1852 


he went to his birthplace so poor that he begged a shilling with which to 
transport his baggage to the town. Upon reaching the hotel his only re- 
quest was for a bed, and to be left alone, and there the next morning he was 
found dead.

VELAZQUEZ, Diego Rodriguez de Silva y. Spanish School 

Bom at Seville, 1599; died at Madrid, 1660. Both his parents were 
of noble blo«d — ^his father's name being Silva, his mother's Velazquez. His 


talent for drawing quickly showed itself. He studied first with Herrera 
el Viejo, a painter of Seville, his second master being Pacheco^whose daughter 
he married in 1618, and whose house, says one of the Spanish historians, 
was 'Hhe golden prison of painting''; and it was here that Velazquez niet 
Cervantes and obtained his first introduction to the brilliant circle in which 
he himself was to shine. In Pacheco's company he went, in 1622, to Madrid, 
returning one year later at the request of Olivares, who persuaded the King 
to sit to Velazquez for his portrait. The portrait was a complete success, 
and the painter stepped at once into fame and favor. From the time of 
this first portrait of Philip IV onward, the life of Velazquez was one of 
long triiunph. He was made in succession Painter to the King, Keeper 
of the Wardrobe, Usher of the Royal Chamber, and Chamberlain; and 
offices were also found for his friends and relations. When Charles I, 
then Prince of Wales, visited Madrid, in 1623, Velazquez painted his 
portrait. The Duke of Buckingham was also his friend, and Velazquez 
saw something too of Rubens, when the latter came on his diplomatic 
mission to Madrid. In 1629 he traveled with recommendations from 
the King, and wherever he went — Venice, Ferrara, Rome, Naples — he was 
received with all the honors accorded to princes. His second visit to Italy 
was in 1649. At Rome he painted the portrait of the Pope (Innocent X), 
which made so great a mark that it was carried in triumphal procession, 
like Cimabue's picture of old. His royal master, however, became im- 
patient for his return, and he hurried back to Madrid in 1651. On his 
return he was given fresh honors and offices — especiaUy that of Quarter 
Master, whose duty it was to superintend the personal lodgement of the 
King during excursions. It was the duties of this office which were the 
immediate cause of his death. He accompanied the King to the conference 
at the " Island of Pheasants,*' which led to the marriage of Louis XFV with 
the Infanta Maria Teresa. There is a picture of him at Versailles by the 
French artist Lebnm, which was painted on this occasion. The portrait, 
somber and cadaverous-looking, was, no doubt, true to life; and when 
Velazquez returned to Madrid it was found that his exertions in arranging 
the royal journey had sown the seeds of a fever, from which, after a week's 
illness, he died. Seven days later his wife died of grief, and was buried at 
his side. ' 


He is between thirty and forty years old, the face is turned three-quarters 
to the left of the spectator, the eyes looking to the front. He has abundant 
black hair and mustache and a serious expression of the face. His habit is 
black and he wears a stiff linen collar close about the neck. The background 
is warm gray. From one of the royal palaces of Spain.

VINCI, Leonardo da School of. Florentine School 

Bom at Vinci, Val d'Amo, near Florence, in 1452; died at the Chfiteau 
de Clot, or Cloux, near Ambroise, May 2, 1519. Florentine School, pupil 
of Andrea del Verrocchio, with whom he was associated as late as 1476. The 
bright angel which he painted in hb master's picture of the ''Baptism of 
Christ," Florence Academy, and the ''Medusa Head'' at the Uffizi attributed 
to him, are the only extant works of the earlier period of his style, which closed 
in 1483. Lodovico Sforza, Duke of Milan, appointed him court painter, 
director of the newly founded Academy of Arts, general organizer ol fetes in 
which art played a conspicuous part, and manager of all enterprises in which 
a knowledge of hydraulics engineering and general science was necessary. 
For the Duke he executed the famous wall painting 6f the "Last Supper" 
(1495-98), in Santa Maria delle Grazie, and modeled an equestrian statue, 
never cast, of his father, Francesco Sforza. When Lodovico was overthrown 
l^ the French (1499), and sent to France to die in a dungeon ai the Castie of 
Loches, Leonardo returned to Florence, thence to Venice, and (in 1502) he 
visited the fortress of the principal cities of Romagna as miUtaiy^en^eer tQ 


CsBsar Borgia. Between 1503 and 1505 he produced the famous Cartoon of the 
"Battle of the Standard," from which he was to have painted a fresco in the 
great hall of the Palazzo Vecchio, at Florence. In October, 1507, Leonardo 
once more established himself in Milan, until 1514, when he accompanied 
Giuliano de' Medici to Rome to assist at the Coronation of Leo X. In 1516 he 
went to France, at the invitation of Francis I, and spcAb the last three years of 
hb life in the King's service.

round her head, and holdmg in her hands a salver of fruit. She has long, 
flowing golden hair, and is attired in a rich dress of Italian fifteenth century 
fashion. Sir Charles Robinson says: 

"There can be no doubt that this most admirable and unique picture 
should be referred to Leonardo's early period; i.e., that it was executed at 
Florence before his removal to Milan, consequently anterior to 1483^5 " 
It was formerly in the possession of Lord de Ros, and afterward in that of 
Lord St. Leonard, at Boyle Farm, Thames Ditton, near London; Boyle 
Farm, with its furniture and collections complete, having been purchased 
by the latter from Lord de Ros about 1830-40.

A superstition exists among the pious Hindus that the souls of the faith- 
ful who die on the left bank of the Ganges Hiver are blessed, and enter directly 
into Paradise, while those who pass away on the opposite shores are cursedL 
and their souls are changed into long-suffering donkeys or other beasts of 
burden. So the boy rows lustily, while a comrade fans the old Fakir in order 
that he may arrive soon enough to draw his last breath in the shadow of some 
temple and pass directly into peace. The background shows a line of temple 
steps, and wooden platforms, built out over the stream to facilitate bathing 
and washing in the waters of the sacred river, as weU as for meditation. The 
devout sit ror hours sheltered under their straw umbrellas dotted like mush- 
rooms along the shore. In the centre of the background is the burning ghat, 
where after death the bodies of the better classes aro burned in the open.

WEST, Benjamin. American School, 

Bom at Springfield, Penn., October 10, 1738; xiied in London, March 
11, 1820. He began to draw when seven years old and took his first lessons 
in preparing colors from Cherokee Indians. After a little instruction from 
a painter named Williams, he set up, when eighteen years old, in Philadel- 
phia, as a portrait painter; thence removed to New York, and in 1760 went 
to Italy, where he remained until 1763, when he settled in London. His 
pictures of "Agrippina bringing home the ashes of Germanicus," painted 
for the Archbishop of York, and the "Departure of Regulus," bought by 
George III, won him royal patronage and favor, which he long enjoyed. 
From 1769 to 1801, during which time he received all orders from the King, 
who made him his historical painter, 1772, West gained £34,187. The 
seven pictures illustrating revealed religion, which he painted for the Oratory 
at Windsor, brought him in £20,705, and his many portrait!^ of members of 
the Royal family were highly remunerative. On the death of Sir Joshua 
Reynolds, 1792, West succeeded him as President of the Royal Academy, 
of which he had been one of the founders in 1768, and with the exception 
of a few months, held that ofiice until his death, in 1820.

the Society for the Encouragement of Arts. He assisted Mr. Mortimer in

he for some time made that his pursuit; after practising some years in London 
he visited Ireland, where he pmnted a large pictiure of the Irish House of

WILSON, Richard, R.A. English School 

Bom at Pinegas, Montgomeryshire, 1713; died at Llanberris, Carnar- 
vonshire, 1782. An eminent English landscape painter. He early mani^ 
fested a taste for drawing, and gave such promise that his relative. Sir George 
Wynne, took him to London, and placed him under an obscure portrait 
psunter, Thomas Wright, where he made rapid progress. In 1748 he painted 
a large picture of the Prince of Wales, and his brother the Duke of York, 
In 1749 he went to Italy. While stopping at Venice, he paid a visit to 
Zuccarelli, who happened to be from home, and Wilson, to pass the time, 
made a sketch in oils, of the view from the painter's window. ' Zuccarelli 
thought so highly of this sketch that he recommended Wilson to relinquish 
portrait and take to landscape painting. A similar experience with Vemet, 
in Rome, caused Wilson to devote himself to landscape painting.

Medals: Paris, 1836, 1837, 1865; Legion of Honor, 1839; Officer, 1857; Order 
of Red Eagle, 1861 ; Wiirtemberg Crown Order, and many others. 


The Maids of Honor of Roderick, King of the Spanish Visigoths, about 
A.p. 700. The king, wishing to determine which of their number was the 
fairest, retired to a lonely spot, where, in concealment, he was a witness of the 
scene, and awarded the prize of beauty to Florinda, whom he afterwards made, 
the object of his love. Her father, in revenge, called the Arabs into Spain and 
brought about the Arab Conquest. 

The Empress Eugenie and her Maids of Honor were said to have been the 
models for the painter. 

In a thickly wooded glen twelve maids of honor, semi-nude, ready for a 
bath, are gathered together in a semi-circle around a pool of water, all uncon- 
scious of tne presence of the king who is peering through an opening in the 
wood at the left. The castle is seen above in the distance.

CRIVELLIy Carlo. SchooU of Padua and Murano. 

1480?-1495?, By descent, and probably by birth, a Venetian. Bom early 
in the XV. Century (1430?). Little is known of his history, but marked 
affinities of style connect him with the Schools of Padua and Murano. He 
settled, perhaps, a little before 1468, at Ascoli, in the Marches of Ancona, and 
in that neighborhood he seems to have spent the rest of his lifetime. The 
obaracteristic features of his art are sharpness, not to say hardness, of outline, 
oombined with exact modelling, color resplendent and diverse, from the 
primary tints to the most delicate tertiaries supported and harmonized by the 
use of gold and the introduction of gilt and silvered ornaments in high relief. 
Of his dated works, the earliest (1468) is the altar-piece in 8. Silvestro at 
Massa, near Fermo. ^His great altar-piece of 1476 is in the National Gallery, 
London; two exquisite pictures of the ** Enthroned Madonna and Infant" 
are in the Lateran Gallery, Rome, dated respectively 1481 and 1482. A 
superb triptych, also one of his finer works, a "Coronation of the Virgin'* 
(date 1493), and four other works by him, are in the Brera at Milan ; his 
splendid ** Annunciation " (1486) is in the National Gallery. The Vatican 
has a passionately conceived '' Pietft/' and the Berlin Gallery has an important 
** Madonna" and a ** Magdalen." There are many other works by this artist. 
In 1490, Crivelli was knighted by Ferdinand of Capua.

LHBRMITTE, L<on Augustin. French SdhooL (gMptgeiOBw) 

The following is a translfttion of a letter written by the artist : 

WissANT, Pas db Calais, August 11, 19(^. 

Qkntlemen : To succinctly repl^ to the question that 70U have asked me 
concerning the Salon painting of which jou have just become the possessors, I 
will say to you that I have wished to depict the Christ, the friend of the 
humble folk, eternal consoler of the poor for whom life is a burden. 

He brings to them, in coming into their midst, the comforting and helpful 
words which engender hope. 

A large part of the interest in my painting centres upon the young mother 
surrounded by her children. She is wholly absorbed in the contemplation of 
the divine visitor, to whose exhortations she is listening in rapt devotion. 

I have endeavored to bring to all of the figures in this scene the varieties 
of emotions proper to each, but united as one in the expression of confidence — 
respectful in the old, searchingly so in the young. 

To better convey the feeling, I have placed in the light, in this sombre hut, 
the principal actors of the scene, taking advantage of that privilege which 
nature placed at my service to help me in my artistic intentions. 

It IS thus that the effect of the concentrated light has seemed to me to 
contribute to the expression of the feeling, the emotion, sought. 

I am happy to see that you have not been insensible to these researches in 
art, and charmed that this picture, the execution of which has occupied nearly 
all of last year, goes to America as a specimen of my work. 

I do not forget that it is to you that I owe this honor, which I fully appre- 

Permit me, therefore, Gentlemen, to offer to you in this regard, with 
feelings of gratitude, the expression of my most distinguished sentiments and 
entire devotion. .

CONSTABLE^ John, R.A. English School 


The scene, which is overlooked from a slight elevation on the bank of the 
river, extends down through a picturesque valley in the County of Suffolk, 
where Constable lived and loved so well to paint. The low-lying, deep blue 
hills which skirt the horizon rise into a sky filled with broken, heavy, watery 
clouds, which shadow the broad meadowlands beneath ; gleams of sunlight 
illumine the broad acres and glint over the surface of the stream which winds 
down beneath a rustic bridge, in the middle distance, to the foreground of the 

Sicture, where two clumsy boats, with figures, are drawn up near the left 
ankof the river. Above the boats is a large group of sturdy oaks; at the 
right, a cottage snuggled down among a cluster of small trees and bushes 
which creep along the bank of the stream to the immediate foreground, where 
two boys are seated on the bank fishing.

emotional nature.

Bom at Furness, Lancashire, 1734; died at Kendal, 1802. Apprenticed 
to a cabinet-maker. After residing at Kendal and York, Romney established 
himself in London, 1762, where he obtained a premium from the Society of 
Arts for a picture of the "Death of General Wolfe," and a second for an 
historical painting in 17((5. He accompanied Ozias Humphry to Rome, and 
on his return in 1775 became established as a favorite portrait painter in Caven- 
dish Square; he afterwards removed to Hampstead, and finally retired to Ken- 
dal, where he died. He executed many portraits of Lady Hamilton. 


Painted for George IV. when Prince Regent. Seated with the fig^ure to 
the front, her face turned to the right, nearly in profile, the eves looking in 
the same direction. She wears a wnit« dress, open at the neck, with a sash 
around her waist, her abundant blond hair, bound with a i)ale blue ribbon, 
falls about her face and shoulders in a charming and artistic manner. The

of Devils from Heaven, The Mission of the Apo^s, to the right, St C/ues, 

Purchased, 1871. Panel, 60| H. ; 89| W. 

Painted in Tempera npon gold background, with gilded Gothic framework (partlj restored). 

The painting shows strong traces of Siennese influence, but the types are 

r non-Italian, and probably the picture is an example of the little known 

Avignonese School. The confinement of the Popes at Avignon^ 1309 to 1377, 

led to an immigration of Italian artists, of whom the chief was Simone Martini. 

. The native school must have felt the influence of this, with the result of 

* producing such a variation from the Siennese style as this pand displays. 

The fact that the Saint represented is St. Giles, indicates a French rather than 

an Italian origin, and this view is borne out by the misspelling hiU for ite, in 

the picture of tne Mission of the AposOes. This was a Fr^eh provincial

Son of Paulus Joosten Wouwennan. He learnt the practice of his art from 
his father, and studied landscape painting under Jan Wijnants, but he is 
supposed to have also profited by tne examples of Andries Both and Pieter 
van Laer. Landscape always played a prominent part in his compositions. 
Horses were his favorite study and he generally found reason to introduce at 
least one of those animals into his pictures: a white horse often serves as his 
principal mass of light. Few galleries are without specimens of his work; 
m many he is abundantly represented; the Amsterdam Museum has 13,

The Catalogue of this loan is a reprint from that of Mr. William 
H. Vanderbilt, published in 1886, with a prefatory note by Mr* S. P. 
Avery. ...«_«^_«.^ 


Mr, William H. Vanderbilt was born in the year 182 1. In 
1854 he accompanied his father, Commodore Cornelius Vander- 
bilt, and other members of his family, on his steamship the 
" White Star," during the famous trip to notable parts of Europe, 
It was the desire to visit Rome, but on account of the cholera 
then raging there they could only land at Civita Vecchia, where 
Mr. W. H. Vanderbilt purchased his first painting. Later on, in 
the early *6o's, he began to purchase and commission pictures 
from a number of our native artists. This experience did much 
to interest him in collecting works of art. His first purchases were 
distributed throughout his residence on Fifth Avenue, southeast 
corner of Fortieth Street. During 1868 and succeeding years he 
began to purchase works by foreign artists. On the death of his 
father in 1877 his increasing means enabled Mr. Vanderbilt to 
purchase ejcamples of the celebrated living and recently deceased 
painters, which at that time had not become common in this 
country. Frequently going to Europe, he visited the national 
and private galleries, attended notable public sales, conferred 



with reliable experts, made extensive purchases, and gave com- 
missions to several prominent artists of the time. 

In course of events and with many art accumulations Ifi; 

Yanderbilt found that he required more extensive premises. He 
then built his final residence at 640 Fifth Avenue^ with adjoining 
picture galleries, to which he removed in 1881, and where he 
continually added to his collection up to the time of his death in 
1885. Since then no paintings have been added, neither have 
any of them ever been exhibited outside the residence, where for 
several years it has not been convenient to admit visitors. la 
consideration of the many applications to see the paintings, Mr. 
George Vanderbilt, having planned to be absent from the city for 
the most of the coming year, has in the most generous manner 
loaned this portion of his father's collection to the Metropolitan 
Museum of Art, where it can be freely enjoyed by the public.

Louis XIV. and the Grand Cond& 


Painted to order, 1878. 

(Extract of Letter from the Artist.) 

** In order to deliver your picture of the * Reception of the Prince of Cond^ 
by Louis XIV./ 1 have worked upon it without intermission to reach the desired 
end, and I hope that I have succeeded, I hope also that you will be satisfied, for 
I have done my best to arrive at this result. A few lines about the subject will 
make you understand it in its details. The reception takes place on the grand 
staircase at Versailles. This staircase no longer exists. It was destroyed under 
Louis XV., but there remains an engraving of it at that time, very well executed, 
which has enabled me to reconstruct it with truth. In the year 1674 Conde had 
returned to Court, where he was received in triumph. The King came forward 
to meet him on the grand staircase, which was not his usual habit. The Prince 
was going up slowly, on account of the gout, which made him almost helpless. 
At soon as he saw the monarch, * Sire,' said he, * I beg Your Ma}esty*s pardon 
to make you wait so long.* * My cousin,' answered the King, * do not hurry. 
When one is so loaded with laurels as you are, it is difficult to walk quickly.* 
Louis XIV. pressed him in his arms, and embraced him repeatedly. By the 
side of Louis XIV. stands his son, the Duke of Burgundy, whom they called 
the Great Dauphin, at that time thirteen years old. He died while young, with- 
out having reigned, and was the father of Louis XV. Behind him is his pre- 
ceptor Bossuet, Bishop of Meaux. On the right and on the left are members 
of the Court*

Painted to order, 1878. 

(Extract of a Letter from the Artist.) 

* The title of my picture is * The Arrest of an Ambulance, Eastern Part of 
France, January, 1871,* They are civil Ambulanciers, who have been taken by 
a Prussian patrol in a village where a battle has taken place. When their papers 
have been examined and recognized in order by the Prussian general, they will 
be released and authorized to collect the wounded and assist in the German in* 
firmaries. The spot where the scene is laid is a village in Franche-Comt^ ; they 
have fought there ; the Germans occupy it. The foot-soldiers who surround 
the ambulances are Prussian Chastcon (Rheimsches Jagers, Battalioa K9, 9). 




The Prasska fenenl b accompanied hf an oflScer of tbe Hnasars (Ldbhisaren, 
Re^ment No. 2), and by an officer of the staff ; his cap and cloth-facini^ of 
amaranth. The two other officers are : the one in blue tunic and yellow cellar, 
an officer of the Dragoons ; the other, an officer of the Cuirassiers (Branden- 
burgisches Cuirassiers, Regiment No. 6, Kaiser Nicholas I. Ton Russland). 
The dead body in the foreground is that of a Bavarian foot-soldier. Those are 
also Bavarians who are at the end of the street, and at the entrance of the house 
under the fa9ade, and pierced by bullets. Here are very minute explanations, 
but I thought that Mr. Vanderbilt would be pleased to have all possible details 
about his picture. I hope that he may be satisfied with it« and that It will 
receive many compliments.*^

The Picture Gallery. 

23 X 30 

This represents a Gallery of Antique Paintings. Several visitors are mak- 
ing good use of the catalogues and references which they have found in the 
boxes on the tables. On the easel is a Monochrome by ** Apelles**; above 
which appears part of a large picture, taken from the great Mosaic in the Naples 
Museum, which is probably a copy of the painting ** The Battle of Issus,** by 
Philoxenos of Eretria. The picture over the doorway might be attributed to 
Marcus Ludius, the inventor of that most charming and well-known architectural 
decoration in which Pompeii abounds. Through the doorway is seen another 
work, taken from a Mosaic in the Naples Museum, representing ** Strength 
Captivated by Love." The life-size figure is, by some archaeologists, believed 
to be the '• Medea *• by Timomachos of Byzantium, which picture Julius Caesar 
bought from the artist for 40 talents 0^8 ,000) for his collection in the gardens 
on the Tiber, and left by will to the Roman people. Next to this, " The 
Sacrifice of Iphigenia," by Timanthes, is a picture much praised by ancient 
writers ; to the right appears a foreshortened Lion, which there is reason to 
believe is the work of Pausias, who is said to have been the first to paint objects 
in foreshortening, and never to have been surpassed in that branch of art. The 
picture above it represents *' A Theatrical Rehearsal,** taken from a Mosaic in 
.he Naples Museum. 

This pair of pictures (8 and 12) have been engraved by A. Blanchard of 
Paris. «

Lucy, mrcely yet recovered from the bewilderment of her terror and the 
faintness of her swoon, clings with all her light weight to the stranger*s arm, 
while yet she seems to be urging him onward. There Is a look of entreaty 
blended with trust and helplessness, in the beseeching blue eyes and in the 
wistful face. The plaid, which she wears in the graceful old Scottish fashion, 
folded mantillawise over her head and shoulders, still wet with the water he has 
used to restore her to consciousness, clings closely round the fair face and neck 
and slender figure. Her small gloved hands are clasped clingingly round his 
strong arm. He, with knit brow and dark eyes fixed in a far-off look — it may 
be that he now first sees the enemy of his house, the author of his father's ruin 
and death, the usurper of his birthright ; or that he already reads, as in a vision, 
the mysterious interweaving Of his fate with that of the innocent daughter of his 
and his house's enemy, who clings to his arm, with dreamy eyes, that seem, like 
his own, to see far into the future.

Mr. F. O. Day, St. Louis. 

(Extract of Letter from the Artist.) 

** The subject is a representation of what is usually to be seen in the busi* 
ness-room of an * agent,' where, as our Scottish Bums expresses It, ' Pair tenant 
bodies, scant o* cash,' drop in one after the other to pay rents and arrears ; often 
with great difficulty to themselves, and sometimes not without unwillingness, 
even when they can, from a failing not uncommon in frail human nature, viz.: 
a distaste to part with the cash. The agent, accustomed to the work, and used 
to the many complaints of 'high rents, hard times, failure of crops,' etc., takes 
h all as a philosopher, and quietly listens, chats, and nibs his pen, having but 
one point in view — ^getting the cash. The particular incident illustrates what 
is not uncommon — a difficulty in arranging contra>accounts, and for work * done 
for his Honor, and for which his Honor said himself was to be deducted from 
the rint.* The Lady, who is sometimes the better man of the two, b active and 
looking after their interests, knowing that a mistake might be made ; while the 
clerk, likely to be more sharp than polite, feels that in his, for the day, imposing 
and responsible position, he is called upon to look closely into such charges— 
if a mistake exists, it may be in tkeir favoT'-^s^nd^ in all probability, will in the 
end have to refer the matter to his superior. The other figures are all acces* 
sories of the sam^ story : The man coming in warm, rubbing his Jiead with his 
kerchief, chatting to the old man of the weather, and the hard run he has had 
to be in time before his Honor got busy, as he had to go look after some heifers 
in the field beyant Patsy Conroy's after he had done his business; another 
stooping to pick up some papers he has dropped out of his hat ; while the 
agent's 'own man' is seen coming in at the door with some books which will b% 
required in the course of the day. This is lomething like what I intended. 
After the warm reception the picture has met with in Paris, I think I may veOi 
ture to hope it will still add to my reputation,"

(Extract of a Letter from the Artist.) 

• I have received with great pleasure your obliging letter No one can be 
sensible than I to the expressions of sympathy which it contains. Yoa 



mnat hKf% alreadj lecdred the picture of ^Pia de Tolomei,* wlilcli I luive 
patnted for you. I will give you the passage of history which inspired nqf 
work.* Pia, of the noble family of the Tolomei, of Siena, was shut, up in a 
castle of the Maremma, by her husband, Nello della Pietra, who accuse her of 
infidelity. The poisoned air of this region killed her. I have, then, imagined 
her upon tb: terrace of the castle, strong in her innocence, and defying her evil 
destiny. Pia has been for many years a favorite subject with Italian pMnters 
and poets. Her story is a mysterious one, and her personality has alwa^ at- 
tracted a noble 83rmpathy, Dante, who places her in his * Purgatory,* de^^^tes 
to her only a few fines of the Fifth Canto, but these few lines are a poem <n 

themselves s 

* Ah I when thoc hast returned onto the worid* 

And rested there from thy long joomej^og; 
• t • • • • • 

Do thoo remember me, who am the Pla f 

Sieda made me ; unmade me, Maremma | 

He knoweth it who has encircled first, 

B^ixmsing me, my tnger with his gem.* 

" Aliieri has written a fine tragedy, and many poets have sung the beauty 
and the sad fate of Pia de TolomeL You know my aspirations. I do not need, 
therefore, to tell you what an attraction this noble and touching figure must 
have for me. I have exerted myself, therefore, to the utmost to paint the sub- 
ject as it presents itself to my imagination. My artist friends, and others in 
whom I place great confidence, have praised the picture very highly ; aad, for 
my own part, I am well pleased that this picture is to go to you, for I consider 
it not only one of my very best works* but also one of the most affecting that I 
liaTtt painted."

Tbe Water Carrier. 


From the Hartmann CoUectioiit Puis, l88t. 

la • letter addressed to hb friend Thor^ in z86o, Millet refers to tUs pit. 
tort ai foUowa ^ la the woman coming from drawing water, I did not try to 
l^rtray a servant* but a wife who had just drawn water for her household needs 
«-the water with which she makes her husband's soup — and that she should 
appear to be carrying neither more nor less than the weight of the full pails ; 
that through the kind of grimace that is forced on her by the dragging down of 
the arms and the half-closed eyes, that just allow her to see, one could divine 
mi her visage an air of rustic goodness. I have avoided, as I always do, with 
a sort of horror, anjrthing that turned towards the sentimental ; I wished, on 
the contrary, to show her accomplishing with simplicity and willingness an act 
wblcb ii, idth tbt other household datiei» ao everyday part of her life. **

MILLET a '•). 
The Sower. 


'* While petlentiy studying the action of his rsape n , Mfllsl predttced a 
tfgers wliieh had long occupied his thoughts. We know wliat a seriooe affair 
the lowing is to an agricultural people. Plowing, manuring, and harrowfag 
art done with comparative indifference, at any rate without herole paseiea | but 
when a man puts on the white grain-bag, rolls it around his left arm, fiOfl It with 
seed, the hope of the coming year, that man exercises a sort of sacred miabtry. 
He says nothing, looks straight before him, measures the furrow, asd, with a 
a»ovement cadenced like the rhythm of a mysterious song threws the grain 



which falls to the earth and will soon be covered bj the harrow. The rhythmk 
walk of the sower and his action are superb. The importance of the deed is 
real, and he feels his responsibility. If he is a good laborer he will know hew 
mack seed to throw with eyeiy fling of his hand« adjusting the amount sown to 
the nature of the soiL I have seen sowers who, before they put foot upon the 
field, would toss a handful of grain into the air in the sig^ of a cross ; thea, 
stepping upon the field, they would pronounce. In a low voice, some iadiitiaet 
words which sounded like a prayer." ** The Sower" was sent to the Saloa of 
1850, then held at the Palais Royal. It made some noise ; the young school 
talked about it, reproduced it in lithography, and It has remained In the mem- 
ory of artists as Millet's €hef'd*€tuvre» Th^phile Gautler was touched by It. 
In the following quotation we see the Impression made by this vhrfle work : 

** * The Sower,* by M. J. F. Millet, impresses us as the first pages of ' Mare 
au Diable ' of Geoiges Sand, which are about labor and rustic to^L The alght 
is coming, spreading its gray wings over the earth ; the sower marches with a 
rhythmic step, flinging the grain in the furrow ; he Is followed by a cloud ^ 
pecking birds ; he is covered with dark rags, his head by a curious cap. He 
k bony, swart, meager, under this livery of poverty, yet It Is life which his large 
hands sheds \ he who has nothing pours upon the earth, with a superb gesture, 
the bread of the future. On the other side of the slope a last ray of the sua 
shows a pair of oxen at the end of their furrow, strong and gentle companions 
of man, whose recompense will one day be the slaughter-house. This is the 
only light of the picture, which is bathed !n shadow, and presents to the eye, 
under a cloudy sky, nothing but newly ploughed earth. Of all the peasants 
sent to the Salon this year, we much prefer * The Sower.* There Is something 
great and of the grand style in ^he figure, with its violent gesture. Its proud 
raggedness, which seems to be painted with the Teiy earth (hat tht tower it 
planting.**— (Scnsler't ** Life of Millet.^
