Born at Haarlem 1624; died 1683. The subject represents a repose of figures and cattle, under the shade of a rising ground; the clear broad rays of light which illumine the subject are beautifully effective. This specimen is of the very choicest of the master, and unites his distinguished excellencies, transparency and harmony of colour, a sweetness and breadth of pencil, a grandeur in the masses of light and shadow, and a judicious choice of nature, united to that wonderful power and ease in expressing every subject, in which he was so inimitable. (On canvass--1 ft. 10 inh. by 3 ft. 10 inh.) [P. 5.]
