Portrait of Jacob Batelier, Preacher

Inscription

Het hooghgeleerdt verstandt schiet straelen door 't gesicht; Maer klaerder op 't papier. Aenschou dat, daer syn' boeken De spreuk van Jacob en van Esau ondersoeken. Hy leerdt wat godt met recht verwierp, uit gunst verkoor. Het misverstandt verdwynt. Syn helder licht breekt door." bottom left: "I. Westerbaek pinx." center: "H Bary sculp." right: "G. Brandt"
