"Born at Haarlem in 1394; died at Louvain, in 1475. Pupil of Van Eyck. Dutch school. 43. Head of Christ. H. 13 1/8 in.; W. 9 1/4 in. We can say nothing more emphatic on the subject of this little picture so full of devout feeling, than to state that it always passed for a work of Memling until it was ascertained to belong to Dierick Bouts whose works are extremely rare." [P. 25.]
