Excerpt from The Lives of the Most Eminent British Painters, Sculptors, and Architects, Vol. 5
However he came by it, Jamesone acquired such skill in painting as attracted the notice of his countrymen: he was advised to seek abroad what he could not find at home; and had the good sense or the good fortune to establish him self in the studio of Rubens, with whom he re mained for several years in the company of Vandyke. We know that in the year 1619 Van dyke left his great master and went into Italy and the inscription on a picture by Jamesone in forms us, that in 1623 he was a husband and a father, and pursuing his profession in Scotland. It is, therefore, probable that the latter was some thirty years old before he visited the Nether lands -a ripe age; yet students of threescore years and more are not unknown to academies. I have seen William Blake, within a few years of his death, studying at Somerset House with all the ardour of youth; and other names not less distinguished might be cited.
