"The present picture is copied from the celebrated one of Both. The warmth of his skies, the judicious and regular receding of the objects, and the sweetness of his distances, affords the eye a degree of pleasure, superior to what we feel on viewing the works of almost any other artist. The present picture is full of variety and motion in the sky and the ground, trees, herbage, &c. are beautifully touched with spirit and truth; the whole forcibly expressive of the subject. A fine copy from John Both, who was born at Utrecht, 1610, died 1650." [P. 10-11.]
