Anecdotes of Painting in England: With Some Account of the Principal Artists - Vol. 2

By Horace Walpole | Go to book overview

bable that this painter was in England at least in that year, and Vertue found it confirmed by Houbraken his scholar, who, in his Lives of the Painters, 1 says, that Hoogstraten was born at Dordrecht, in 1627, was first instructed by his father, and then by Rembrandt; 2 that he painted in various kinds, particularly small portraits, and was countenanced by the Emperor and King of Hungary ; that he travelled to Italy, and came to England ; that he was author of a book on painting, called De Zichtbare Waerelt, 3 and died at Dordrecht in 1678.


BALTHAZAR VAN LEMENS,

(1637—1704,)

was among the first that came over after the Restoration, when a re-established court promised the revival of arts, and consequently advantage to artists ; but the poor man was as much disappointed as if he had been useful to the court in its depression. He was born at Antwerp, in 1637, and is said 4 to have succeeded in small histories ; but not being encouraged, and having a fruitful invention and easy pencil, his best profit was making sketches for others of his profession. He lived to 1704, and was buried in Westminster. His brother, who resided at Brussels, painted a head of him.

There is also an account of him in the second volume of Descamps, which was published but a little time before the death of Vertue.
2
He is said to have greatly enriched himself whilst in England. His portraits were remarkable for an agreeable likeness, which was the cause of encouragement.—D.

[I have taken a slight liberty with the text here. In all previous editions the title of this book is given as Zichtbare Waerelt getelt worden; the last two words are part of Houbraken's sentence in noticing the work—"onder de laatste mach Samuel van Hoogstraten Schilder en Schryver van 't Schilderboek genoemt, de Zichtbare Waerelt getelt worden." That is, "Among the last, those who have been useful with pen and pencil, may be counted or mentioned (mach—getelm worden) Hoogstraten, for his Painter-book, entitled The Visible World, Zichtbare Waerelt." This book is, however, more explicitly entitled "Inleyding tot de Hooge Schoole der Schilderkonst, anders de Zichtbare Waerelt." Rotterdam, 1678, 4to. (Introduction to the Grand School of Painting, &c.); it is often referred to by Houbraken.—W.]

Graham. A head of Charles I. by one Lemons is mentioned in that king's collection, p. 72. Whether the father of this person, or whether a different name, as there is a slight variation in the orthography, I do not know.
