"TULDEN (Theodore Van).--Born at Bois-Le-Duc, in 1607; he died in 1676. He was a distinguished pupil of Rubens, who soon discerned his talents, and employed him on the grand works at the Luxembourg Gallery. His great excellence appeared in his historical compositions. These are entirely in the style of Rubens, and are extremely similar, as well in respect to the ideas as the colouring--nor are they much inferior to him. This painter was remarkable for painting in small, as well as in large. He had a thorough knowledge of the chiaro-oscuro. In his drawing, he was less correct than his master." No. 37.--THE SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS--a copy after Rubens--on panel. This is a fine specimen of the master, and might be taken for the work of Rubens, except by the most experienced eye. The drawing and colouring are faultless, and, from the high state of preservation of this picture, it will prove a useful study to the artist. [P. 40.]
