"VAN DYCK, (Sir Anthony,) born at Antwerp in 1598. . . . In many of the portraits of his earlier time he is allowed to be equal even to Titian, and superior, to all others. In his sitters he saw all that was dignified, graceful, and agreeable, and communicated it to the canvas, with a felicity so rare in art, that he has been named King of portrait painters." No. 42.--PORTRAIT OF PRINCE MAURICE--in Armour. This is a fine specimen: It makes "the chivalrous elegance of Van Dyck," of which we read, a reality to us; and the richness of the carnations and delicacy of the tints render it a most pleasing picture. [P. 28.]
