Of this great master, Waagen says, "notwithstanding the incalculable minuteness of execution, the touch of his brush is free and soft, and his impasto admirable. By the combination of these qualities, his pictures look like nature herself seen through a camera. His works were so highly esteemed in his own time that the President Van Spiring, at the Hague, offered him 1000 florins a year for the pre-emption right of his pictures." [P. 13.]
