Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. [not numbered]
"TENIERS, (David, the Younger,) born at Antwerp in 1610. The class of subjects which Teniers studied, and in which he excelled--the merry-making of boors, village fairs, grotesque scenes of common life, &c., become elevated and precious in our estimation, from the consummate skill with which he treated them, the humorous incident, and the variety of character he introduced into them, and the unequalled delicacy and elegance of execution. He was himself an accomplished gentleman, living in affluent circumstances, yet seems to have entered into all the jollity and vulgarity of plebian and peasant life with as much zest as intelligence." No.--.--AN INTERIOR WITH MANY FIGURES. A characteristic production. [Pp. 26-27.]
