Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 6
"JORDAENS, (Jaques).--Born at Antwerp, in 1594; and was indebted to Rubens for his knowledge in painting. His pictures are admired for their beautiful, strong and admirable colouring; and those works which he finished at a more advanced age are allowed not to be inferior in colouring to Rubens. For expression and truth, Jordaens surpassed Rubens. His pencil is always excellent, and, for a free and spirited touch, hardly any painter can be accounted his superior." No. 6. THE SATYR AND MAN BLOWING HOT AND COLD.--This picture is painted in a hasty and bold style, similar to the works in general of this master. Some of his productions are very superior, and have passed for those of Rubens. [P. 32.]
