Description

Excerpt from Annals of the Artists of Spain, Vol. 3 of 4 Bartolome Roman was born at Madrid in r 596. He studied painting first in the school of Vincencio Carducho, and afterwards in that of Velazquez. Few Castilian painters, says Cean Bermudez, equalled him in power of drawing, and in richness and har mony of colouring. But his success was by no means commensurate with his merits, and his works were not often to be met with. One of his most important pictures seems to have been a large composition in the sacristy of the church of the Incarnation, representing the marriage-feast, in the parable, whence a guest was ejected for appearing without a wedding garment.1 At Alcala de Henares the convent of San Diego had some pictures by him, amongst which was a St. Anthony that had been begun by Alonso Cano.
