Born at Cologne in 1577; died 1640; aged 63. A spirited specimen of the master, and full of action. The suppressed quiet of the two females overlooking, as also the timidity that marks the soldier with the shears, is well represented. The pencilling is vigorous and bold, and the expression fine and true, while the foreshortening of the back of Sampson is quite a work of art. [P. 20.]
