"Full of character and expression, with a fine tone of colour and in excellent condition. This is a first-rate picture of the master, and will bear comparison with any of his works, when the variety of grouping and the management of the whole is con- sidered, the lovely carnations of the flesh, the truth of outline - we must confess the hand of a great artist. This picture is exceeded by few. The imagnination of Dusart was remarkably strong, and his memory amazing; for whenever he saw a striking original figure, which he thought capable of being introduced into any future design, he could, at any distance of time, recall the idea of it, and retain every trace of it so distinct, as to describe it with the same atitude, humour, and natural tone as if the object had been then present before his eyes. He was a disciple of Adrian Ostade. Painted by Cornelius Du Sart who was born in Haerlem, 1665, died 1704." [P. 31.]
