Born at Rotterdam A.D. 1638--died A.D. 1695, aged 57. This great painter's favourite subjects were huntings and animals, which he treated in a masterly style; he also painted conflagrations and towns on fire, but his chief excellence was in the representation of dogs, in which few artists surpassed him. DESCRIPTION. This capital picture represents a Stag hunt; the expression of agony in the face of the Stag, which is run down by its furious enemies, is wonderful. The freedom of touch, the excellence of the Design, and the beauty of the colouring, is not inferior to Snyder or Rubens. This picture was formerly in the Collection of Thomas Turner Esq. of England.
