"His pictures are not so exquisitely finished as those of van huysum, but his composition and colouring are in a bolder style. his flowers have generally a remarkable freedom and looseness as well in the disposition as in the pencilling, together with a tone of colouring that is lively, admirable and nature itself. The disposition of his objects is surprisingly elegant and beautiful; and in that respect his compositions are easily known, and as easily distinguished from the performances of others. This is a very good specimen. Painted by John baptiste monneyer, who was born at lisle, 1635, died 1699." [P. 9.]
