"(Flemish, dec'd.) Member of the academies of Belgium, Antwerp and St. Petersburg. Chev. of the Legion of Honor; of the Orders of Leopold of Belgium, Michael of Bavaria and Christ of Portugal. Decorated with the iron cross. The sheep cote. 21 x 28. This work, painted on panel, is dated 1840, previous to the time when an ever increasing demand for the artist's pictures betrayed him into a hurried and somewhat careless manner, which greatly detracted from their real value. It does not need a single word of comment."
