"WEENIX, (John,) called the Young, born at Amsterdam in 1644. He painted, with great ability, landscapes, animals, flowers, and fruits, but excelled in the representation of dead game and hunting scenes. He had a surprising power of his pencil, and finished with an equal degree of excellence whatever he painted. The colouring of young Weeninx was true; he had the skill to vary his touch according to every different subject, without adhering to the style of any particular master, and his figures had as much merit in their design and disposition as any other part of his works." No. 17.--THE ROYAL CHILDREN.--This is a very fine specimen of the master, exhibiting excellencies in every part. [P. 29.]
