Born at Amsterdam, A.D. 1639, died A.D. 1672, aged. 33. This beautiful little cabinet gem represents two sheep lying down in a landscape under a tree, on the opposite side of which the herdsman is seen reclining, apparently asleep: this is a most highly finished specimen of this great and much esteemed master, and possesses all that beauty of colouring and exquisite touch for which he is so remarkable.
