This painting represents Diana resting after the chase. Janssen was a celebrated artist, born at Antwerp in 1569, and died about 1631. He was justly celebrated in his day for richness of coloring and breadth of treatment. Although somewhat older than Rubens, they were yet rivals, and each had his strong personal admirers. Many of his pictures are in good preservation, and command high prices when offered for sale. He painted a great many pictures of different subjects, noted for luminosity of color, and at times for the grossness of the subject.--Spooner. [P. 11.]
