signed with surprising fidelity, and finished with
extraordinary care. He resided some time in Paris,
and afterwards visited Florence, where his talents
were distinguished by the Grand Duke, Naples, and
Rome, where he passed several years. He painted
entirely from nature, to which end he is said to
have kept a kind of museum of serpents, vipers,

SCHUEMANN, Anna Maria, born at Cologne

talents. She is said to have been able to read
when she was only three years old, and at seven
had made great proficiency in Latin, which she
had acquired from occasionally overhearing her
brothers' lessons with their tutor. Her father pro-
cured her the means of acquiring a fuller know-
ledge of Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, which became
so familiar to her, that she not only wrote but spoke
them with fluency and correctness, and mastered
a great variety of accomplishments besides. But
her inclusion here is justified by her powers as an
artist. She painted her own portrait, and those of
several of her friends, and sculptured several busts,
some of which have been preserved. She etched
and engraved some plates, among which is a portrait
of herself, signed Anna Maria Schurmans an.

' Nativity ' and ' Assumption of the Virgin ' in the
church of the J<s:iits; a 'Dead Christ, with the
Virgin and SL John,' in St. Jacques, which has

was one of the founders of the Academy in that

th-'se of Murillo, and frequently pass for such. He
died at SeWlle in 1676.
