    'Noch auffällender sind aber seine Übernahmen aus dem graphischen Werk von A. Bloemaert. [...] Ist man einmal diesen Kopien auf den Spur gekommen, so fällt er auch nicht schwer, in Bouchers grossen Gemälden Erinnerungen and die schön geschwungenen Bloemaertfiguren aufzuzeigen, wie bei der Rückenfigure der Venus, die wir auf verschiedenen Bildern bewundern.
