"A fine, warm, mellow picture, in his best style, the execution remarkably fine, colouring very mellow, the sky is warm and full of lustre, and finished in such a manner as produces a pleasing and striking effect; he painted every part of his subjects so extremely well, as to render it difficult to determined in which he excelled most; his trees, buildings, waters, rocks, hils, cattle and figures, all being equally admirable. Painted by Nicholas Berghem, who was born at Haerlem, 1614, died 1683." [P. 20.]
