"The colouring is rich and at the same time clear and transparent, and the figures full of sweetness and dignity. The expression is very fine and light, extremely well managed, and the whole of a beautiful effect. This master had an extensive genius, and though history engaged his attention principally, yet he painted all kinds of subjects with equal readiness and ease. His invention is noble, his attitudes are natural, and his outline is correct. He was state painter to the king of France. Painted by Chevaliere Jaques Stella, who was born at Lyons, 1596, died 1647." [P. 27.]
