"BROUWER, (Adrian).--Born in Haerlem, in 1608; he died in 1640. He was brought up by Fr. Hals, and patronized afterwards by Rubens. His subjects were taken from low life, and copied after nature. His expression is so lively and characteristic--the management of his colours so surprising--and the truth united with such exquisite finishing, correctness of drawing and transparence, that his pictures are inestimable." No. 87.--AN INTERIOR.--This picture is one of Brouwer's best works, and is in a perfect state of preservation. [P. 55.]
