P. Potter. B. 1625. The celebrated original of this picture, in which the animals are the size of nature, is admitted by every one to be the finest picture of its kind in existence. It is elaborately finished yet boldly executed, minute in its details yet broad in effect, rich and brilliant in color without being gaudy, and for truth to nature and appearance of daylight cannot be surpassed. It is worthy of record, that this picture, which would now produce ten thousand pounds, was about sixty years ago sold for less than L. 80 within a few yards of the Museum in which it is now deposited. The picture was painted out of doors, by the side of the wood at the Hague, and in the distance is a view of Rysbraeck; nearly every object may be seen now as represented by Potter in this picture. [P. 14; exhibited under note: "The following are copies from celebrated pictures in various public galleries that have been made under Mr. Jones's superintendence, with a strict regard to the style of each master."]
