Note:Ref. Landwehr 90 ; Praz p.85/86 & p.288. "Love emblems flourished in Holland, where the emblem became an outstanding form of the national literature. The realistic emblems form a counterpart to genre painting and supply interesting evidence for the history of costume. J. de Brune's Emblemata are specially remarkable in this respect".
