The General Biographical Dictionary, Vol. 7 free pdf Excerpt from The General Biographical Dictionary, Vol. 7 Brill (Matthew), an artist of whom very few particulars are mentioned- the most material are, that he was born at Antwerp, in 1550, and learned the rudiments of his art in that city- that he went to study at Rome, and in a very few years manifested so much merit in landscape and history, that Pope Gregory XIII. employed him to work in the Vatican, and allowed him an honourable pension as long as he lived. He died in 1584, aged thirty-five. Brill (Paul), an excellent artist, brother to Matthew Brill, was born at Antwerp, in 1554, but bred to the profession of painting under Daniel Voltelmans. From the time of his quitting that master till he went to Italy, his manner was rather stiff, his pictures had a predominant brown and yellow tinge, and his design and colouring were equally indifferent. But when he visited his brother Matthew at Rome, and saw the works of Titian and Caracci, he altered his Flemish manner entirely, and fixed upon a style that was abundantly pleasing, with a charming tone of colour. The pension and employment which his brother possessed at the Vatican were conferred upon Paul- and he so far surpassed him, that he daily rose in his reputation, till he was considered as the first in his profession. Annibal Caracci generally painted the figures in his landscapes, and by that means increased their value to a very high degree. His manner of painting is true, sweet, and tender- the touchings of his trees are firm, and yet delicate- his scenery, his situations, and distances, are admirable, most of them being taken from nature- and the masses of his light and shadow are strong, and very judicious- though, in some of his small easel-pictures, he may be sometimes accounted rather too green, or at least more greenish than could be wished. It is remarked of him, that, in the latter part of his life, bis landscapes were always of a small size- but they are beautiful and exquisitely finished, and frequently he painted them on copper.
