Born and now living in Brussels. This remarkable picture is regarded as the "chef d'oeuvre" of his most excellent master. His style is quite in opposition to that of Verboekhoven, who paints, with a fine, delicate brush, the minutest detail. Tschaggeny, on the contrary, aims at breadth and freedom. He paints objects as he sees them--artistically, rather than literally--and with wonderful power and effect. The repose, dignity and sentiment, which his works possess, are evidence of a refined taste and correct judgment. His works are rapidly increasing in value, and eagerly sought for by the most fastidious collectors. [P. 5.]
