"A woody scene of a beautiful and transparent colouring, bold and free pencilling, the chiaro scuro well understood, in the forms of his trees and in the breakings of his grounds; a grandeur of thought appears through all his compositions; the leafing of his trees is light, and admirably touched; the figures have attitudes and actions, that are easy and natural, yet full of dignity; and his expression is excellent. Painted by Salvator Rosa, who was born at Naples, 1614, died 1673." [P. 11.]
