"BERCHEM, or Berghem, (Nicholas,) born in 1624. This charming Painter of landscape and cattle was born at Haerlem. He possessed a clearness and strength of judgment, and a wonderful power and ease in expressing his ideas; and though his subjects were homely, yet his choice of nature was judicious, and he gave to every subject as much of beauty and elegance as it would admit. The leafing of his trees is exquisitely and freely touched; his skies are clear; and his clouds float lightly, as if supported by air. He is celebrated for the brilliancy and harmony, as well as the transparency of his colourings, the elegance of his composition, and the just gradation of his distances." No. 55.--A LANDSCAPE--on panel--representing a stag-hunt; a lady and gentleman on horseback, with several huntsmen and dogs are in the foreground, others on horseback in the distance; a wounded stag and another bounding away on the left. This is a very fine specimen of the master. [P. 7.]
