Born in Amsterdam in --, died 1828, aged --. This admirable painter studied the works of Cuyp and Rembrandt, and his pictures partake of that beauty of colouring and force of effect of those great masters. This little picture is known by the name of The Smugglers. It represents a boat of figures rowing into a cove towards which one of the men is pointing, for the purpose of landing their contraband merchandize; on the opposite bank of the river are some cows grazing, beyond which in the extreme left is a Windmill: the richness of colouring and the intelligence of light and shadow which is produced in this picture, is little inferior to Rembrandt; while the broad facile and crisp touch resembles that of Cuyp. It may be considered one of the best specimens of this much esteemed artist. From the Collection of I. Taylor, Esq. of England. [Pp. 40-41.]
