THE BRYAN COLLECTION



Digitized by

THOMAS J. BRYAN

Thomas Jefferson Bryan was the son of Guy Bryan and
Martha Matlock, his wife. He was born at "Spring Hill,"
Philadelphia, Pa., about 1800, and died at sea. May 14, 1870,
on board the French steamship "Lafayette," while on his
way to New York, four days out from Havre, France.

Mr. Bryan graduated at Harvard University in 1823 and
studied law, but he never practiced his profession, as he had
an adequate inheritance.

Much of his time was given to foreign travels in forming a
valuable collection of paintings. For a time this collection,
known as the Bryan Gallery of Christian Art, was displayed
on the walls of a spacious room in a house on the comer of
Broadway and Thirteenth Street, where an admission fee
of twenty-five cents was charged to view the paintings,
Mr. Bryan himself being the custodian in charge. He
next deposited them in the Cooper Union, and in 1867 he
deeded the entire collection to the New York Historical
Society, which he catalogued, arranged and added to from
time to time until his death in 1870.

B-6. Virgin and Child. (12^ xSf) Simone Memmi.

The head of the Virgin presents the same type as
that exhibited in the Dortrait of Petrarch's Laura,
painted by Memmi, which is in the Library of the Vatican.
From the De Montor collection — engraved.
(Bryan Collection.)



B-7. The Last Judgment. (12^ X8i.)



Simone Memmi.



"Christ, with the cruciform halo, and the elliptical
aureola, bordered with cherubim, appears in the heavens.
Above, two angels, strangely enough colored entirely blue,
sound the trumpet; below, the Virgin and St. John
kneel upon the ground, from which rises the cross, on
which two angels are looking. On the left, the elect,
wearing crowns of gold, mount towards the sky, under
the protection of a pitying spirit; on the right, the damned,
covered with blood, are delivered to the demons by a
minister of divine vengeance. Jesus himself wears a
terrible expression. Michael Angelo is, therefore, not
the first to have given him this menacing aspect. The
general color of the picture pleases the eye by its extreme
fineness : the Virgin and St. John by the beauty of their
types." To this just and graphic description from the pen
of M. Michiels, which appeared in the Gazette de France ^
it is needless to add any thmg more. From the De Montor
collection.

ANCIENT VENETIAN SCHOOL
B-17. Virgin adoring the Infant Jesus. (18^x11.)

The Virgin kneels before her Divine Son. Around are
angels, and behind her is Joseph. Above is a company of
angels; and, in the distant sky, one is seen appearing to
the shepherds. The infant has a crimson, cruciform au-
reola. In this rudely-drawn picture the future glory of
the Venetian School, its gorgeous color, is plainly indicated.
