The costume he has happily preserved; it abounds with life, learning and dignity; gracefulness, ease and vivacity; and may in truth be pronounced among the best of his productions."[P. 292-93; Gottemans adds in footnote:) "Sebastien Bourdon (1616-1671), French historical painter. His 'Finding of Moses' is in the Kress Collection at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C." [P. 293; this painting is reproduced in the article.]
