"He had good expression and genius, and noble ideas in his characters. He painted with extraordinary freedom, ease, and expedition; there is a brilliancy and harmony in his colouring, and a good understanding of the chiaro-scuro; his composition rich; his pencil free and sprited, in which no painter can be accounted his superior.
