Excerpt from Bryan's Dictionary of Painters and Engravers, Vol. 3

The English artists who have died since the appearance of the last edition of this Dictionary, and whose lives appear in this volume, include two Presidents of the Royal Academy, Lord Leighton and Sir J. E. Millais. The life of the former has been written by the Editor, and that of the latter by Mr. Baldry, whose works on Millais are so well known. Next perhaps in importance should be mentioned the biographies of Du Manner and Charles Keene, written by Mr. Whyte, and that of Phil May, by Mr. G. S. Layard. Other leading artists included in the volume are Stacy Marks, Albert Moore, and bis less talented but better-known brother, Henry Moore, J. R. Herbert, Sidney Hodges, C. E. Holloway, Edwin Long, J. W. Inchbold, William Morris, J. E. Hodgson, Frank Holl, and Edward Lear.

The lives of some of the great English artists have bad to be rewritten in the light of recent discovery, amongst which should be mentioned those of Morland, whose memoir is the work of Mr. Ralph Richardson; Leech, who has found an excellent biographer in the Rev. G. S. Davies of Charterhouse, where so many of the artist's best drawings are now to be found; Hoppner, whose biography is the work of Mr. Hardie of the South Kensington Art Library; and Nathaniel Hone.

Of Old Masters special attention may be directed to the serious care which has been given to the Anonymous Masters, especially those of the German school, and to such mysterious persons as Meister Wilhelm, Stephan Lochner, and H. Wynrich von Wesel (see Köln). Miss Constance Jocelyn Ffoulkes has taken this entire series under her charge, and has carefully collated the results of the most recent German scholarship, in order that this school of painters and engravers might have adequate justice done to them.

Mr. Davies, of Charterhouse, the latest biographer of Holbein, has written the article on that master, as well as those on the elder Holbein, Andros Holbein, and Hals, to whom he gave some special attention in a previous volume on that great artist. Mrs. Berenson has written a new biography of Lotto, basing it of course on the well-known life of that artist by her husband, and on the latest information which has been gathered regarding the eminent portrait painter.

Miss Cruttwell, who has written a monograph on Mantegna, has had charge of the article on that artist, and has provided a very full account of him and of his works.
