Born at Enkhuysen, A.D. 1625--Died A.D. 1654--aged 29. . . . DESCRIPTION. This cabinet specimen may be justly termed a transcript of nature, embellished by the beauties of art. The scene is laid near a grange which is seen in the left of the picture; in the fore-ground is a sheep lying down near a brook, on the opposite side are two goats, one of which is drinking from the brook; in the centre of the picture is a group of cows, delineated and coloured with all the characteristics of truth which evinces the superior excellence of the master, as a painter of cattle. A milkmaid attending to her rural occupation is in character with the subject; it is painted in a full and flowing pencil, at the same time highly wrought; the tone is firm and free, and the sky is in a clear and warm tone, producing the tranquil effect which is observable of a Summer's evening. This admirable work of art is from the collection of Thomas Emmerson Esq. of England. [Pp. 51-52.]
