Cyclopedia of Painters & Paintings (1887)

Cyclopedia of Painters and Paintings is not only a biographical dictionary of the painters of all times and schools, including prominent contemporaries, but it is as well a dictionary of works. The important paintings of all periods are treated under their own names, in separate articles, in which are given an accurate description of each work, its date, its place of preservation, its history from the time of leaving the painter’s easel, notices of its replicas & copies, and the names of its engravers.
