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

By Horace Walpole | Go to book overview

Dr. Christopher Terne.

Samuel Malines. [In a cloak. 7l. 7s. Bindley.]

Sir Henry Wootton, [æt. 72, fol.]

Father Paul.

John Dethick, [of West Newton, Norfolk, ob. 1644.]

[Christopher Bennet, M.D 1655.

Jeremy Taylor, Bishop of Downe, 1660.]

Alexander Ross.

W. Cartwright, author, [of Tra- gedies, 1643.]

Thomas Taylor. [D.D.]

Brian Walton, [Bishop of Chester, æt. 57, 1651.]

De la Fond, Gazetteer of Amster- dam, 1667.

Johannes Dallæus.

Charles Emanuel, Prince of Savoy, 1671. This seems the latest of his works.

In Overton's Catalogue of Prints dated 1672, is mentioned a book of the Seven Sciences, eight plates, by Lombart, but probably executed when he was in England.

Vertue also names an emblematic print which he calls Theophila, or Love-sacrifice, with the device of the Trinity. It is the title to Bendlowe's Divine Poems, folio, 1652.


JAMES GAMMON

" can hardly," says Vertue, "be called an engraver," so poor were his performances : yet one of them has preserved a memorable person, Richard Cromwell, and authenticated a picture that I have of him by Cooper. Gammon's few other heads are—

Sir Toby Mathews, Catherine of Braganza, and Mascall the painter, from a picture done by himself.

[Henry, Duke of Gloucester, 15l. 15s. —S. This high price does not confirm Vertue's opinion of Gammon's merit as an engraver.

George, Duke of Albemarle, large half sheet, oval in armour.]


ROBERT THACKER,

calling himself designer to the king, engraved a large print on a plate of four sheets of the Cathedral at Salisbury. Morgan, of whom I find as little, may be mentioned with him, having done a plan of London for Ogilby.


WILLIAM SKILLMAN,

living between 1660 and 1670, engraved the facade of Albemarle-house, and a view of the Banqueting-house.
