NEItLI61, Victor (nay-lig), artist, born in Paris, France, in 1830. He was the pupil of Leon Cogniet and Abel de Pujol, came to the United States in 1856, and, after residing for some time in Havana, Cuba, settled in New York. Here he was elected an associate of the National academy in 1863 and academician in 1870. He returned to Europe in 1872. Mr. Nehlig's paintings are characterized by admirable drawing of the figure, and he has done some effective work in the way of book illustration. His principal works, many of which are illustrative of American history, are " The Cavalry Charge of St. Harry B. Hidden" (1863), in the New York historical society; " The Artist's Dream The Captive Huguenot"" " Gertrude of Wyoming Hiawatha and Minnehaha"; " Armorer in the Olden Time"; "Battle at Antietam" ; "Battle of Gettysburg" ; "Waiting for my Enemy" : "Serenade " : "The Bravo" (1870) ; "Mahogany Cutting" (1871) ; and "The Princess Pocahontas" (1869-'72).
