"b. at Leyden, 1607. d. 1699. Pupil of J.J. van Swanenburg, and possibly of Pieter Lastmann and Jacob Pinas. One of the greatest portrait painters that ever lived. The effects of light and shade in Rembrant's pictures, and the marvelous richness of his coloring are the admiration of the world to-day. " The lesson in anatomy. Supposed to be the original study for the great picture in the Royal Gallery at the Hague. Note the experimental sketches along the right hand edge of the canvass." [P. 29.]
