NOTE.--Gerard Honthorst, called Gherado della Notte by the Italians, from his often representing scenes by torch-light, was an eminent Dutch painter, born at Utrecht in 1592. He succeeded in combining, in a most admirable manner, the vigorous coloring and powerful lights and shadows, with a dignity of character and a correct and elevated taste of design. There is an admirable torch-light scene, by Honthorst, in the church of the Madonna della Scala, at Rome, representing the Decollation of St. John. He afterwards settled at The Hague, where he died in 1660. [P. 15; see entry 04130001 for related commentary.]
