"Spring is represented drawn by oxen and sheep in her chariot, and strewing flowers - with a group of nymphs, dancing for joy of the returning year, in the distant ground. A very agreeable and excellent historical landscape - a good effect of light and shade, and well coloured. Painted by Michael Carre, (a disciple of the celebrated N. Berghem,) who was born at Amsterdam in 1666, died 1798." [P. 4.]
