"With truly infantine loveliness and sweetness of colouring, not to be surpassed by any thing of the kind. He had studied the best masters, raphael, titian, tintoretto, &c. He had a good genius, a lively and prompt invention, and a rapid execution, his colouring is natural, his draperies are well cast, his design is correct; and he is ranked among the principal painters of his time - he was director of an academy at Berlin. Painted by Augustin Terwesten, who was born at the Hague, 1649, died 1711." [P. 14.]
