"This picture was from the collection of the late Duke of Buckingham, by Simon Verelst, his flower and fruit subjects, he handled in a charming manner, and gave them force and relief by a judicious management of the chiaro scuro. He painted his objects with great truth and resemblance of nature, and his coloring was fresh and clear, his flower and fruit pieces fetch very high prices. He was employed chiefly by the nobility of England. Painted by Simon Verelst, who was born at Antwerp, 1664, died 1710." [P. 8.]
