"(An allegorical painting.) By John Van Hoeck, 1640. John Van Hoeck, who was born at Antwerp in 1600, was a pupil of Reubens, and subsequently became almost as famous as his master. This picture is an exact copy of a painting by Reubens, as will be seen from the engraving attached, and was probably painted in his studio. It was supposed to be a Reubens, till, upon cleaning it, the name of the artist and date were found upon the picture. Van Hoeck died in 1650."
