"VICTOR, or FICTOOR, (Jan,) born about 1600; he died in 1670. He was bred in the school of Rembrandt, to whom he was, in many respects, equal. His subjects were mostly taken from the Old Testament." No. 13.--THE DEPARTURE OF THE PRODIGAL SON.--This is a very fine picture, painted with great force and freedom: the composition is well adapted to the subject, and it would be difficult to find a better work of this master.
