"An attempt to enumerate the beauties of the details of this picture, would involve a repetition of those many encomiums, which have been deservedly bestowed upon the talents of wouwermans by each of the numerous writers upon the subject of painting, who have lived since his time. Suffice it to say, that the figures and other objects are beautifully varied in their grouping, and designed with his accustomed correctness of outline, that every part is finished with the most exquisite delicacy, and, at the same time, freedom of pencilling, and that the whole is in his first style of colouring." [P. 8.]
Gallery of Pictures, selected from the most admired productions of the Old Masters, Doggett's Repository, No. 16 Market-Street.
