The author supplies new particulars concerning the painter Nicolaes Maes, extracted by him from the archives of Dordrecht and Amsterdam. He impugns Mr. Valentiner's opinion, that the painting in the National Gallery in London, representing Jesus blessing the children, is indisputably by Maes, and points out, that Mr. Valentiner was similarly mistaken with respect to the drawing of an old woman's head, which represents Maes' aunt and not his handmaid, as appears from the inscription. The author's notes demonstrate among other facts, that Maes lived in Dordrecht untill 1673, and was in Amsterdam in 1674. Then various particulars follow concerning Maes' parents and other relations. It appears, that part of the purchase money of his house in Dordrecht was paid by means of a replica of the ownef and his family. In the parlour of the house, rented by the English Court there hung a chimney. piece. painting by Maes; another in the saloon in addition to two other large paintings by Vroom and by P. Lesire and to one by an unknown artist representing the family Struys. Finally particulars are given concerning Maes' inheritance.
