1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 36
He was the son and pupil of Francis Mieris and imitated with success his father's style. He painted historical subjects, but in small size, choosing always agreeable scenes. His landscapes are ornamented with figures most delicately finished, harmoniously and truly delineated. [P. 7; see entry 04100034 for a note on the work's provenance.]
