Lisbon: Impressão Regia, 1815. Recent half morocco.. The author of this rare work was one of the most celebrated artists of early 19th century Portugal, and considered by José Augusto França (A arte em Portugal, v. I, p. 116) to be among the most innovative of his day. Having studied painting in Rome, he was one of the generation of the Ajuda Palace who decorated the ceilings and walls of the Palace and of the Convent of Mafra, and in 1803 he became court painter. The Memoria dos mais famosos Pintores Portuguezes, e dos melhores Quadros seus, occupying pp. 141 - 258, is highly important for the details it gives of Portuguese artists, the first attempt at information of this kind. Innocêncio IV, 302. Pinto de Mattos 215. Gonçalves Rodrigues, A tradução em Portugal, I, 3201.
