Anecdotes of Painting in England: With Some Account of the Principal Artists - Vol. 3

By Horace Walpole | Go to book overview

fol. 1652, he drew and etched several designs, [as well as the portrait of the author,] as he did for Ogleby's Virgil and Æsop.

His share in Monke's Funeral, and in the Book of Birds1 I have mentioned.

A print of an eagle soaring in the air with a cat in its talons. This event Barlow saw in Scotland, as he was drawing views there. The cat's resistance brought both animals to the ground, where Barlow took them up.

who is mentioned both by Mr. Evelyn and Sanderson, was scholar, and close imitator of Hollar; and though I do not know that he attempted views, may, in his heads, be mistaken for that master. Indeed, that is not saying that he arrived at great excellence ; yet he far outshone many I have mentioned. He engraved the couchant Venus of Titian with a Spaniard playing on an organ, a fine picture of King Charles's collection, and since of Lord Cholmondeley's. The other works of Gaywood are portraits, of Mary Queen of Scots with a cross in her hand; W. Drummond of Hawthornden, the Scottish historian, a small oval, with his arms; Edward Cocker, who seems to have been an engraver too: 3 there are two different prints of this man, one of them very neat. Sir Bulstrode Whitelocke, [13l. 13s.—Bindley]; Sir George Croke; William Fairfax, 4 with six English verses; Holbein; James Hodder, writing- master ; William Leybourn; Marguerite Lemon, Vandyck's mistress, with French verses; Countess of Portland; John Playford: there are three different prints of this man, by Gaywood, Loggan, and Van Hove; Matthew Stephenson,
