Flemish. 1586. "Schelte a Bolswert, the most skillful of the artists formed in the school of Rubens. He is the first one who attempted to make engraving something more than a dry representation of the painting; that is to say, taking for his model, pictures in which the characteristics of life predominated, where harmony and brilliancy of colors were pushed to the extreme verge, he does not shrink from endeavoring to express in his engraving precisely the life and richness of color contained in the works which he was translating, and he succeeded perfectly."
