Born at Amsterdam, A.D. 1640--died A.D. 1678, aged 38. This charming painter was a disciple of Nicholas Berghem. With the advantage of such an instructor, his progress was extraordinary, and to perfect himself, he travelled to Italy. After a residence of several years in Rome, he returned to Holland, where his pictures were not less admired than they had been in Italy. The works of Du Jardyn generally exhibited a warmth and brilliancy of atmosphere resembling that of Italy more than Holland; his pictures are always highly wrought, and this beautiful specimen gives ample proof of his great talents. DESCRIPTION. It is a small richly composed landscape, with a hilly meadow for the foreground, on which are seen a bull, horse and sheep, with children on the opposite declivity, and a tree on the right; the stump and roots of a tree, behind which is a dog, fills the left of the picture; the sky is clear is clear and sparkling; the landscape spirited and free, and the figures and animals are painted with the truth and finish of Paul Potter. This little gem adorned the collection of M.M. Zachary, Esq. [P. 16.]
