JOSE BENLLIURE Y GIL (1858- ), Spanish painter, was born at Valencia, studied painting under Domingo, and showed from the first such marked talent that he was sent to the Spanish school in Rome. He was one of the select circle pensioned by the Spanish government for residence in Italy and executed several state orders for the decoration of public buildings; but he owes his chief fame to his large historical paintings, notably the " Vision in the Coliseum." He became the leader of the Spanish art colony in Rome, where he practised as painter and sculptor.
