Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 5
Born 1600; died 1663. A beautiful realization of the artist of whom it is said, He selected the most enchanting scenes and the most beautiful aspects of nature: the graceful poplar, the spreading planetree, limpid fountains, verdant meads, gently undulating hills, villas delightfully situated, calculated to dispel the cares of state and to add to the delights of retirement. All the enchanting scenery of Tusculan or Tibertine territory, and of Rome, . . . was copied by this artist. . . . This picture is nearly allied to the "Abraham and Isaac" in the National Gallery, London, and is one of his fiest specimens. [Pp. 7-8.]
