Philip IV. in armour wearing the order of the
Golden Fleece, inscribed 'A Religione Magnus,'
and an excellent head of Olivarez, the minister,
with the cross of Calatrava, both framed in tasteful
borders, and taken from pictures by Velasquez.

PANNEELS, WILLEM VAN, a Flemish painter
and engraver, was born at Antwerp about the year
1GOO. He was a disciple of Rubens, as appears
from the inscription on one of his prints. He
worked at Cologne and Frankfort-on-the-Maine,
and one of his plates is dated 1636. The year of
his death is unknown. Of his work as a painter
little is known, and from the number of his prints
he appears to have been chiefly employed in
etching after Rubens and from his own designs.
The following are his principal plates :

The Portrait of Rubens, in an octagon border.

David cutting off the Head of Goliath.

Esther before Ahasnerus.

The Adoration of the Magi.

Mary washing the Feet of Christ.

The Assumption of the Virgin.

The Holy Family, with the Infant Christ and St. John

playing with a Lamb.
St. John baptizing Christ.

Samson killing the Lion, with a companion, David kill-
ing the Lion and the Bear.
St. Sebastian.
The Toilet of Venus.
Jupiter and Antiope.
Jupiter and Juno (all after Rubens).

The Nativity (these three after Annibale Carracci).

PANNI, an obscure Italian decorative painter.
He was a relative and pupil of Gio. Bat. Zaisl.

PANNICCIATI, JACOPO, according to Baruff-
aldi, was born at Ferrara about the year 1510.
He was a disciple of Dosso Dossi, and painted
history much in the style of that master. He died
young, in 1540.

and engraver ; born in Paris in 1802, and became
a pupil of Abel de Pujol. He mostly did portraits
in pastel, his engravings being after works by
Van der Meulen, Winterhalter, L>e Mirbel, Sandof,
&c., for the Versailles Galleries ; he also engraved
many portraits by well-known artists. In 1849
he obtained a third-class medal. He died November
14, 1869.

POLO, (or PANINI,) was born at Piacenza in 1691,
or 1695. He went early to Rome, where he became
a scholar of Andrea Locatelli and Benedetto Luti.
He also partly adopted the style of Salvator Rosa.
He applied himself to designing the remaining
monuments of ancient architecture in the Roman
vicinity. His merit, however, is not confined to
architecture ; he decorated his pictures with figures,
gracefully designed, and grouped with taste.
Although he usually confined himself to pictures
of an easel size, he was not incapable of succeed-
ing in works on a larger scale ; and Lanzi speaks
in very favourable terms of a ' Christ clearing the
Temple,' with life-size figures, in the church of the
Signori della Missione, at Piacenza. Works of
Pannini are to be found in most large collections
in England, and several decorate the palaces of
Rome. Two of the finest are in the gallery of
the royal palace of Monte Cavallo. Pannini died
in 1764. He was a member of the Academies of
San Luca, at Rome, and of Paris. Many of his
pictures have been engraved by Lempereur, Le
Bas, J. S. Miiller, Vivares, Benazech, Bartolozzi,
and other eminent engravers. The following are
among those that remain :

PANNINI, GIUSEPPE, painter, was born at Rome


ar>out 1745. He was instructed by his father,
Giovanni Paolo Pannini. He painted chiefly land-
scape and marine pictures, and travelled in Italy,
France, and England. He died about 1812.

PANCENDS, a distinguished painter of ancient
Greece, was the nephew of the great sculptor,
Phidias, and probably some years younger than
Polygnotus and Micon. He exercised his talents
in conjunction with his uncle, in adorning the
temple of the Olympian Jupiter, where he painted
'Atlas supporting the World,' and 'Hercules, ac-
companied by Theseus and Peirithoiis, preparing
to relieve him of his burden.' He also painted
' Hercules combating the Nemean Lion ; ' ' Hippo-
damia, the daughter of ^Enomaiis, with her mother ;'
' Prometheus chained to the Rock, whom Hercules
is about to deliver ; ' and ' Penthesilea killed by
Achilles.' But the work which most contributed
to the establishment of his fame, was the ' Battle
of Marathon,' with which, assisted by Micon, he
decorated the Pcecile at Athens.

PANTALEO, a Byzantine miniaturist of the
10th century, by whom several of the miniatures
in a missal sent to Luigi Sforza, Duke of Milan,
by the Emperor Basilius Porphyrogenitus, were

Madrid in 1551, and was a scholar of Alfonso
Sanchez Coello, in whose school he so greatly dis-
tinguished himself that Philip II. named him one
of his painters and valets-de-chambre. He became
very eminent both as an historical and portrait
painter. Palomino possessed the original designs
by him for the beautiful tombs of Charles V.
and Philip II. in the Escorial, which he painted in
oil, together with two escutcheons of the Arms of
Austria, en grisaille, which were used at the
funeral ceremony of the great Emperor. He painted
a great number of portraits of the family of Philip
II., of which many exist at the Escorial, the Retiro,
and in the tower of the Paradas. Several were
destroyed at the burning of the Prado. At the
death of Philip, he continued in favour with his
successor, Philip III., who commanded him to
paint his portrait on horseback, as a model for the
famous sculptor, Giovanni de Bologna, then at
Florence, to form the equestrian group in bronze
placed in the garden of La Casa del Campo ; Tacca
also executed a statue from it. He painted also
two magnificent portraits of Philip III. and his
Queen, which are dated 1606, and are still pre-
served in the palace of the Dukes d'Uceda at
Montalvan. Berrnudez lays particular stress upon
the portrait of the councillor Ruiz Perez de Ribera.
which is in the monastery of Santa Maria de Naxera.
It is dated in 1596. Mention is further made of
a picture of the ' Adoration of the Shepherds,'
in which the portraits of Philip II. and his
family are introd iced. Among the other notable
persons whom he portrayed, we find the Empress
Maria and the Princess Juana in the DescaLzas
Reales, and the same Empress with the Princess
Margarita of Austria and Isabel de Valois in the
Madrid Gallery. He was also a successful painter
of animals. After a laborious life he died at
Madrid in 1609. The Spanish parallel to the story
of Zeuxis is attached to a work by this master.
It is related that a superb eagle having been cap-
tured near the Prado, the king gave orders to Pan-
toja to paint its likeness ; which he did with so
much truth, that the royal bird on seeing it mistook
it for a real eagle, and notwithstanding all their


efforts to control it, attacked the picture with
impetuosity and tore it to pieces. The Madrid
Museo possesses the following examples of his work :

Portrait of Donna Maria, daughter of Philip II., and
wife of the Emperor Maximilian II.

Portrait of Isabel of Valois, third wife of Philip II.
pitto. ditto.

Portrait of Margaret of Austria, wife of Philip HI.

his life to Rome, where he entered the school of
Angelo Caroselli, and where he remained thirty
years. After returning to Lucca he established an
academy there. His death occurred in 1681 or
1682. He painted a fine picture of the Martyrdom



of St. Andrew, for the church of San Michele at
Lucca ; and his large work in the library of San
Frediano, representing Pope Gregory entertaining
the Pilgrims, is in the style of Paolo Veronese.
He invented an instrument for taking perspective

PAPILLON, JEAN, ' the elder,' a French engraver
on wood, was born at Rouen in 1639. He was
instructed by Du Bellay, but his design was not
equal to his engraving. He died in Paris in 1710.
PAPILLON, JEAN BAPTISTE, ' the younger,' the
son of Jean Papillon, was born at St. Quentin in
1661. After receiving some instruction in drawing
from his father, he was sent to Paris, where he was
placed under the tuition of Noel Cochin. His first
pursuit was drawing with a pen. He afterwards
turned his attention to engraving on wood, and his
cuts possess considerable merit. He executed a
great variety of vignettes and book ornaments,
and is said to have been the inventor, about the
year 1688, of'paper-hangings for rooms. He died
in Paris in 1723. Among his cuts were the por-
traits of Popes Paul III., Julius III., and Pius IV.,

edition of 'Les Fables de la Fontaine,' iii four
volumes f<51io. He also furnished 217 plates to
the Amsterdam Historical Bihle. He published a
history of the art of engraving on wood, in two
volumes, entitled, ' Traite^ Historique et Pratique
de la Gravure en Bois,' in which, however, he was
guilty of many mistakes, while the appearance of
more recent works on the subject has destroyed
its value. He died in Paris in 1776.

PAPILLON, JEAN NICOLAS, wood engraver, was
born at St. Quentin in 1663. He was the son of
Jean Papillon ' the elder.' He executed several
unimportant works. He died in 1714.

PAPWORTH, GEORGE, an architect, the uncle
of E. G. Papworth, and a man of unusual skill as
a draughtsman and colourist. He was responsible
fur many important buildings in Ireland, but especi-
ally deserves notice on account of the intrinsic
beauty of his architectural designs, the originality
of his drawing, and the refinement of his schemes
of colour. He was born in 1781 and died in

ber of this talented family, son of John Papworth,

therein 1894. He was a most skilful draughtsman
and designer, intimately connected with many
architectural and artistic societies, the author of
many treatises and books on art, and a very
diligent student of archaeology. His designs were
of great merit and beauty, and all students of
architecture are indebted to him for the results of
his diligent and persevering study.

David, born in 1790, and died in 1819. Though
well endowed by nature, his early death and his
laborious finish curtailed his productiveness ; a
portrait of M. de Nanteuil-Lanorville, exhibited in
1817, with three or four other portraits and a few
studies, complete the list of his pictures.

PARADISI, NICCOLO, a Venetian painter of the
15th century, whose name is preserved by the
