"The modern genre paintes not unfrequently revert to the themes and - so far as they are able - to the technical methods of the old Dutch painters, and in this decorous composition Herr Carl Probst, of Salzburg in Austria, has evidently been inspired by Van Mieres. If he has not quite caught the skillfull disposition of light and composition, nor the shrewd delineation of character in his sitters, of that admirable old Hollander, he has at least rendered a very presentable and plausible "restoration," and the etcher has very well reproduced the quality of his work, the varying textures of stuffs, furniture and woodwork of the handsome sixteenth-century interior."
