A History of Painting in North Italy : Ve
by Crowe, Joseph Archer

Overview -
This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1871 edition. Excerpt: ...chiefly by affability and honesty. Once settled at home, and widower of a first wife, who died childless, he married a second, who bore him two sons, and he gained the reputation of being the best teacher of his time. Not content with the acquirement of knowledge for himself he delighted to communicate what he knew to others, and in the course of his career he taught no less (as he tejls us) than 137 pupils, and won the name of father of painters. The practical result to him, however, was not so much wealth as fame; he lived with fair means in his own house at Padua, in the neighbourhood of the Santo, hiring lodgings when he visited Venice; he was a man of great judgment in art but of small practice,2 instructing youths not so much by his own example as by placing before them models and panels."3 From whence these models came we learn distinctly from Vasari, who says they were casts from the antique or pictures imported from various places, but chiefly from Tuscany and Rome.4 Squarcione, in fact was an impresario, who formed a collection for 1 Verbatim as follows: "Quo--circa annavigavit in Grecia, et to tarn illam provinciam pervagatus est: mule multa notatu digna tum mente, tum chartis, quae ad ejus artis peritiam facere visa sunt, inde domum seeum detulit." (Scardeone, ub. sup. p. 370.) Out of this passage, and none other, Selvatico and many others extract more than can reasonably be conceded. The former says, for instance: "C'e ragioue, di credere che in questo amore (the love of the classic) lo rasodassero i viaggi che in virile eta egli intrapresc per l'ltalia c per la Grecia, e le molto pitture marmi o disegni che da quelle regioni egli trasportd in patria." (Scritti ub. sup. p. 8.) Kidolfi (Marav. L 110) follows...
