Excerpt from A Biographical and Critical Dictionary of Painters and Engravers, From the Revival of the Art Under Cimabue, and the Alleged Discovery of Engraving by Finiguerra, to the Present Time, Vol. 1 of 2: With the Ciphers, Monograms, and Marks, Used by Each Engraver, and an Ample List of Their Principal Works, Together With Two Indexes, Alphabetical and Chronological

The painter's art, in the exermse Of its more elevated faculties, inspires the mind with a taste for whatever IS good, as well as what 1s beautiful; fills the heart with the most salutary sensations, and promotes the love Of virtue and the abhorrence Of Vice. Every agreeable impression of which our ideas are susceptible from the contemplation Of the rich and varied scenes displayed by nature, living or inanimate, painting has the power of producing. In minds endowed with the most exquisite sensibility, it can augment the faculty Of feeling, and soften the Obduracy Of the most in exible. Its productions instil into mankind a love of order, Of Symmetry; of harmony of parts, and of general beauty.

By an admirable effort of human genius, palnting Offers to our regard every feature of universal nature; its empire extends through every age, and over every country: it presents us with the events Of the most remote antiquity, as well as those of which we are the witnesses; and places In our view the most distant Objects, not less than those by which we are Immediately surrounded. In this' this admirable art may be said to Surpass even nature herself.
