"His pictures are distinguished for their admirable perspective, correct drawing, neatness and freedom of touch, and remarkable facility of execution. For the Burgomasters of Amsterdam, he painted a large picture, with a multitude of vessels and a view of the city, for which they gave him 1300 guilders and a handsome present. This picture was presented to the King of France, who placed it in the Louvre." [Pp. 16-17.]
