REIGN OF QUEEN ANNE.

SIMON GRIBELIN

(1707)

was born at Blois in 1661, and came to England about 1680; but it was above twenty years before he was noticed. The first work that raised his reputation was the tent of Darius, published in 1707. This was followed by a set of the Cartoons; 1 their success was very great, having never been completely engraved before ; but they were in too small a volume, nor had Gribelin anything of greatness in his manner or capacity. His works have no more merit than finicalness, and that not in perfection, can give them. He afterwards published six historic pieces, from pictures in the royal collection at Kensington, and the ceiling of the Banqueting-house ; 2 but none of his plates give any idea of the style of the masters they copied. His prints at best are neat memorandums. He executed a great number of small plates, on gold, silver, and copper, chiefly for books, but was fittest to engrave patterns for goldsmith's work. I have a thick quarto collected by himself, of all his small plates, which was sold by his son after his decease, which happened, without any previous sickness, in Long-acre. He caught cold by going to see the king in the House of Lords, fell ill that night, continued so next day, and died the third, aged seventy-two. He left a son and daughter. The son graved in his father's manner, and went to Turkey in the retinue of the Earl of Kinnoul, to draw prospects, but returned in about two years. Gribelin the father engraved some portraits, as Duke Schomberg, Sir William Dawes, and a small whole-length of the Earl of Shaftesbury for the Characteristics.
