"The figures and cattle are well disposed with great propriety, and touched with extraordinary spirit and freedom, especially the figures on the foreground, which are uncommonly rich and admirably finished. The objects in his pictures, form admirable masses of light and shadow, the chiaro scuro is well understood, the perspective excellent, and the union and harmony are not injured. Painted by John Vander Heyden, who was born at Gorcum, 1637, died 1712." [P. 32.]
