Born at Utrecht, 1592; died 1660; aged 68. The picture before us is an admirable representation of the event; and, true to nature, Peter, in the moment of surprise from being accosted with "Thou also wast with him," raises his hand in astonishment, while conviction sits on his countenance. The malicious accusation of the female is finely born out by the accusation of the soldier who leans over the shoulder of St. Peter, with his companion holding the lamp hid by the left arm of the foremost soldier, and appears to be reading the countenance of St. Peter with eagerness, indicated by the strained eye, the open mouth and nostrils, and eager stretching forward of the body. Peter is for the moment lost in fear; his left hand continues still to stretch itself over the charcoal for heat, forgetful of his situation. [Pp.
