A

CHRONOLOGICAL LIST

OF

PAINTERS,

FROM THE REVIVAL OF THE ART TO THE BEGINNING OF THE LAST CENTURY.

Instead of the short account of the lives of the Painters by Mr. GRAHAM, which has been annexed to the later Editions of Mr. DRYDEN's translation, I have thought proper to insert, at the conclusion of this Work, the following Chronological List, drawn up by the late Mr. GRAY, when in Italy, for his own use, and which I found fairly transcribed amongst those papers, which his friendship bequeathed to me. Mr. GRAY was as diligent in his researches as correct in his judgment; and has here employed both these talents to point out in one column the places where the principal works of each master are to be found, and in another the different parts of the art in which his own taste led him to think that they severally excelled.* It is presumed, therefore, that these two additions to the names and dates will render this little work more useful than any thing of the catalogue kind hitherto printed on the subject. For more copious Biographical information, the reader is referred. to Mr. PILKINGTON'S Dictionary. M.
