Rubens is well represented by five paintings and Van Dyck by three
admirable portraits. The portraits by Holbein form three of the gems
of the collection. Among the Italian works the portraits by Piero di
Cosimo deserve attention, and among the Spanish works, the Madonna
by Murillo and the royal portrait by Velazques.
The excellent catalogue in French by Dr. A. Bredius and Dr. G. Hofstede
de Groot (1895) is out of print; small catalogue in English, 15 c.
