LYEN, Jacques Francois, was a French portrait
painter, who exhibited atthe Salon from 1737tol747.

LYMANN, Johannes Samuel, a Danish line en-
graver, was born at Copenhagen in 1742. He
studied in the Art Academy of his native city, and
in 1758 gained the large gold medal for an engrav-
ing of ' David cutting ofE the Head of Goliath,'
after his own design. Most of the plates which he
executed are portraits. He died in 1769.

LYNCH, James Henry, a lithographic artist, exe-
cuted principally portraits, which he exhibited atthe
Royal Academy from 1866 to 1866. He died in 1868.

by him at Lambeth Palace, dated 1672.

LYONET, PiETBE, a draughtsman, carver, and
engraver, was born at Maestricht in 1708. He re-
ceived a superior education, and was first a lawyer.
One of his first and best carvings was ' Apollo and
the Muses.' Subsequently he became acquainted
with Karel De Moor and Limborch, under whom
he produced excellent craj'on portraits. At a later
period he drew and engraved insects with extraor-
dinary accuracy, and by these works he obtained
much repute. He died at the Hague in 1789.

LYS, Jan van deb. See Van deb Lis.

LYSARDB, Nicholas, was an historical painter,
who was in the service of Henry VIII. and Edward
VI., and subsequently became sergeant-painter to
Queens Mary and Elizabeth. There is a portrait
at Hatfield House of one of the French kings,
which is ascribed to him. He died in 1570.

LYSONS, Rev. Daniel, an antiquarian draughts-
man, was born in 1760. Many of the illustrations
in his well-known ' Environs of London ' (1792-6)
and 'Magna Britannia' are by him. He was rector
of Rodmarton from 1804 to 1833, and died at his
seat, Hempsted Court, Gloucestershire, in 1834.

LYSONS, Samuel, an antiquarian draughtsman,
was born at Rodmarton in 1763. He studied for the

and became keeper of the records at the Tower. He
illustrated his 'Roman Ruins at Woodchester'
(1797) and ' ReliquiiB Britannic^ Romanse' (1813).
He died at Cirencester in 1819.

MABUSEE, Nicolas Ranieri, an Italian paintei,
who flourished in the 17th century. He was a
pupil of Manfredi at Rome, and painted historical
pictures. His four daughters were also artists,
and met with considerable success at Venice.

MacARDELL, Jambs, an admirable mezzotint
engraver, who was born about the year 1710 at
Dublin, and is justly regarded as one of the ablest
of workers in his branch of art. He was appren-
ticed to James Brooks, with whom he came to
London when he was seventeen. He died in
London in 1765. The number of his plates is
very considerable, and the greater part are from
portraits of persons of distinction by the principal
painters of his time. He also scraped a few plates
from historical subjects by Vandyok, Murillo,
Rembrandt, &c., some of which are extremely
fine. The following may be considered as his best
plates :

MACARB, Pierre Joseph, a French still-life
painter, who was born at Valenciennes in 1758.
He was a pupil of Watteau, whose style he
imitated. He died in 1806.

MACCHI, Flouio, is mentioned by Malvasia as
a native of Bologna, and a worthy disciple of
Lodovico Carracoi. He flourished about the year
1620, and painted several pictures for the churches
at Bologna. In Sant' Andrea del Mercato is a
picture by him of the ' Crucifixion,' with two
wings ; and in La Morte, a ' Raising of Lazarus. '
But his most admired work is a fine fresco of the
' Annunciation,' in the church of II Spirito Santo,
which has been frequently mistaken for a work of
Lodovico. Florio Macchi is mentioned by Orlaadi,
in the ' Abecedario,' as an engraver, but his prints
are nowhere specified. His brothers, Giovanni
Battista (died 1628) and Giulio Gesaee, were
also pupils of Lodovico Carracci.

MACGHIETTI, GiROLAMO, (or Maglietti,) called
Del Crocifissajo, was born at Florence about
1535. He was called ' del Crocifissajo,' from his
having been an extensive painter of crucifixes.
After studying some time under Michele Ridolfo
del Ghirlandaio, he became a scholar of Giorgio
Vasari, whom he assisted for six years in the Ducal
palace at Florence. Pie afterwards visited Rome,
where he studied ' two years, and then went to'
Spain, and after that to Naples. On his return to
Florence, he acquired considerable reputation by
his pictures of the 'Adoration of the Magi,' in
San Lorenzo, of the ' Martyrdom of St. Lawrence,'
in Santa Maria Novello, and of 'Medea and the
Daughters of Pelias,' in the Grand Ducal Palace.
His best works are at Naples, Pisa, and Benevento,
but those in the last-named place perished in an
earthquake in 1668. The year of his death is
unknown, but he was still living in 1564.

MACCO, Alexander, historical painter and
etcher, was born at Ansbach, in Bavaria, in 1770.
He studied at Munich, and afterwards at Rome.
He then travelled to Paris and through Germany,
spending some time at Berlin, Prague, Hamburg,
and Vienna. His works were in the style of
David.

MACBDO. See Clovis.

MAC!^B, Charles, a French engraver, born in
Paris about 1631. He was employed by Jabaoh
in engraving from his collection of pictures ; he
also engraved twelve landscapes after Castiglione.
He died after 1665.

MACBRATA, Giuseppino da, was born at
Macerata about the year 1600, and is said to have
been a pupil of Agostino Carracci. His style
betrays the principles of the Bolognese school,
as is evident in his works in the two colleges at
Fabriano — in the ' Annunciation,' painted in*oil, at
San Niccolo ; and in his frescoes in San Venanzio
representing some of the miracles of the Aposlles.

A BIOGEAPHICAL DICTIONARY OF



Macip



In the church of the Carmelites at Macerata is a
picture by him of the ' Virgin and Infant, with a
glory of Angels, and SS. Nicola and Girolamo';
and at the Cappuccini, ' Christ giving the Keys to
St. Peter,' both of which are stamped with the
character of the school of the Carracci. The latter
is BO like Guide's picture of the same subject, in
the church of the Pilippini at Fano, that it may
almost be considered as a copy. It is signed Jos.
Ma. faciehai. 1630.

MoCONNELL, W., known as an illustrator of
books, died in 1867. Amongst his work may be
mentioned the illustrations to Sala's 'Twice round
the Clock.'

McCULLOCH, Horatio, a Scotch landscape
painter, born at Glasgow, of humble parentage, in
1806. He received his art instruction from a
landscape painter named Knox, and worked dili-
gently for some years on the scenery of Western
Scotland. Removing to Edinburgh, he was in
1834 elected an Associate, and in 1838 a member
of the Scotch Academy. Here he was a frequent
exhibitor, but only once appeared at the London
Academy, namely, in 1844. His art, though merit-
orious, and fairly true to the scenery of his native
country, is somewhat conventional, and but little
known south of the Tweed. His pictures are
very plentiful, however, in Scotland. He died at
Edinburgh in 1867. Three of his works — ' Inver-
lochy Castle,' 'A Lowland River,' and an ' Evening
Landscape ' — are in the Scottish National Gallery.

MACDUFF, Archibald, an English etcher and
sketcher, bom about 1750, who probably did not
follow art as a profession. Amongst his etched
plates are :

The Temptation of Adam ; after Barry.
Job and his Friends ; after the same.
The Birth of Tenus ; after the same.
King Ijear ; after the same.
Holy Family ; after Maphael.

MACHADO, CiRiLLO, painted at Lisbon, and
was a professor at the Academy there early in
the present century. He distinguished himself
principally in portraiture, and is further known for
his knowledge of architecture and science. An
attack of apoplexy made hira unfit for work in
1827. His best works are in the Palace at Mafra,
and in that of the Marquis de GouW, but an altar-
piece for the church of the Heart of Jesus, and
paintings of the Apostles for the church of Goletto,
may also be mentioned.

MACHEK, Anton, was bom at Podlaczicz, in
Bohemia, in 1771. He was apprenticed by his
father, who was a musician in the private chapel
of the Bishop of Koniggratz, to a cabinet-maker,
but showing a talent for art, he was sent to Prague.
There he studied under Wenzel Bluma, and a year
after under Ludwig Kohl. He afterwards re-
turned to Koniggratz, where he painted two altar-
pieces for the chapel in Grast, and several works
for the Bishop's residenoa. In 1798 he went to
Vienna and studied at the Academy for a year.
He then travelled through the country, supporting
himself by portrait painting. In 1806 he settled
in Prague, where h« died in 1844.

MACHEEEN, Philipp van, a marine painter,
lived at Middelburg towards the end of the 17th
century. In 1672 he entered one of the vessels of
war of the republic, for the express purpose of
seeing»a naval combat, a subject which he delighted
to represent. He also made several voyages in
Danish and Swedish vessels for the same purpose.
90



His works are rarely seen with his name, nor are
there any further particulars recorded of him.
Balkema says he died at Amsterdam, and Immerzeel,
at Rotterdam.

MACHIAVELLIjZenobio DB',an excellent early
Florentine artist, who is mentioned by Vasari as
the best of Benozzo Gozzoli's pupils. He assisted
Benozzo in his frescoes in the Campo Santo at
Pisa. The Gallery of the Louvre possesses a
' Coronation of the Virgin,' by Machiavelli, bear-
ing the date 1473. The Pisa Academy has also a
'Virgin and Child, with Saints,' by him, and the
National Giillery of Ireland an ' Enthroned
Madonna, with Saints.'

MACHUCA, Pbdbo, a Spanish painter, sculptor,
and architect of the 16th century, who is spoken
of in high terms by several writers, but whose
works are little known. It is said that he lived at
Granada, and that he there executed several grand
works both as an architect and as a painter, the
latter being in the manner of Raphael, whose works
he had studied in Italy. It is certain that he had
been to Italy ; for he is named among the Eagles,
that is to say, the most illustrious artists of the
time, by Francisco d'Ollanda, whose book was
finished in 1648. Zani says he flourished between
1527 and 1548, and probably to a much later
period. Pachecho, Lazaro Diaz del Valle, and
Palomino, all speak of Machuca having been in
Italy. His fame now rests on his works of sculpture
and architecture in the Alhambra.

MACHY, Pierre-Antoinb de, bom in Paris
about 1722, was an excellent painter of architec-
tural perspectives. He studied under Servandoni.
There are by him in the Palais Royal, on the large
staircase, three perspective views ; and a picture of
the ruins of a Temple is at Valenciennes. Basan,
Janinet, and Descourtis reproduced his best works.
He engraved a Triumphal Arch and two archi-
tectural pieces in bister after his own designs. He
died in 1807.

MACINI. See Mancini.

MACIP, ViCENTB Juan, called also Juan Bau-
TISTA DB JiTANBS, Or JoANNES, was bom at Fuente
de Higuera, in Valencia, in 1523. Palomino asserts
that he was a pupil of Raphael, who died two
years before he was bom. But he certainly studied
in Italy, and caught some of the Urbiuate's manner.
After his return to Spain he settled at Valencia,
where he established a school of painting. His
brush was wholly dedicated to religious subjects.
He designed a series of tapestries for the Arch-
bishop of Valencia, and was much employed in the
different churches and monasteries of the neigh-
bourhood. His most famous picture was a Madonna,
called ' La Puriseima,' painted for the Convent of
the Jesuits. Macip died in 1679. The following
works of his are now extant :

Madrid. Museum. Preaching and Martyrdom of

St. Stephen.
„ „ The Bearing of the Cross.

„ „ Portrait of Don Jjuis de Cas-

telvig.
,, „ The Last Supper.

Valencia. Cathedral. Baptism of Christ.
„ „ Conversion of St. Paul.

,1 „ Holy Family.

„ Museum. A Christ.

„ „ Portrait of St. Thomas de

Villanueva and Abp. Juan
de Bibera.
•I „ Assumption of the Virgin.

A BIOGRAPHICAL PICTIONARY OF



Madot



Similar motives appear to have influenced liim in
refusing to accept the honour of knighthood. His
health had been much impaired by his constant
attendance at the Palace of Westminster, and he
never wholly recovered the loss, in the latter part
of 1865, of his sister Isabella, who had always
lived with him, for he was unmarried. His death
occurred on the 25th of April, 1870, at his house
in Cheyne Walk, Chelsea. The shortest account of
Maolise would be incomplete which did not make
some mention of the books illustrated by him.
Chief among these were Moore's ' Irish Melodies,'
published by Longmans ; Biirger's ballad poem
' Leonore ' ; and Lord Lytton's ' Pilgrims of the
Rhine.' Under this category should also be
classed the series of designs for ' The Story of the
Norman Conquest,' which was exhibited at the
Royal Academy in 1857. The drawings in this
work are fort3'-two in number, and were executed
in the leisure moments of the twelve years previous
to their exhibition. The following are some of
Maclise's principal works :

Snap-Apple Night.

Mokanna unveiling his features to Zelica.

Macbeth and the Witches.

Merry Christmas in the Baron's Hall. {National

Gallery of Ireland.)
Olivia and Sophia fitting out Moses for the Fair.
