"This is a most excellent performance, the composition and grouping very judicious, the distribution of light and shade admirable, the countenances and attitudes of the figures expressive. Bega was a pupil of Ostade whose manner of designing, colouring, and pencilling he imitated so wonderfully, that it is difficult to distinguish between them, he painted after nature and with such force as can only be equalled by nature. Painted by Cornelius Bega, who was born at Haerlem, 1620, died 1644." [P. 17.]
