Born in Antwerp, 1656; died 1870; aged 84. This little picture is a fine specimen of the master. Admirable for its breadth, firm pencilling and truth to nature, with a beauty of finish, almost equal to Adrian Vandervelde. Although a Fleming by birth, he is generally considered an Italian master, having studied at Rome, and generally resided in Italy. His works are greatly admired in every part of Italy. He is extremely natural, of a firm pencil, and his pictures are well designed and executed. (On canvass--1 ft 3 1/2 inh. by 1 ft. 6 inh.) [P. 20.]
