"BOL, (Ferdinand,) born at Dort in 1611; died in 1681.--He was a pupil of Rembrandt. His principal forte was portrait. As a painter of history, he showed a good taste of composition, as well as a tolerable expression in his figures. He always adhered to the manner of Rembrandt." No. 8.--THE PRESENTATION.--This is a remarkably well painted picture, and worthy of the pupil of so great a master. But for the figures in the back-ground, which stamp it as the work of Bol, it might pass for a Rembrandt. [P. 32.]
