"Borgognone (a Frenchman whose name was Jacques Courtoise,) born in Burgundy 1621--spent the most of his life in Italy, where he became intimate with Guido and Albani. A celebrated painter of battlepieces. His works are bold and free; the colour is laid on in masses, but is sometimes rather too red; his drawing was far from faultless whilst his composition is often masterly." No. 10.--A landscape with an extended battle scene filling the foreground and left; where the sky is lit up with a lurid light over a walled city; on the right and in the distance an extensive castellated fortification covering the summit of a hill. This is a characteristic and very good specimen of the master. [Pp. 7-8.]
