IODOCUS WINGIUS, BRUXELL. PICTOR
Wingius hic multum pingebat corpora viva :
Venae, membra, artus, omnia consipicua.
Cujus laudatur, quae expressa est, Belgica nuda :
Quâ ostendit Patriae tristia fata suae.
Translation of Inscription:
Joos van Winghe of Brussels, painter
This van Winghe often painted living bodies – veins, limbs, joints, everything was remarkable. His Belgian nude, which has been printed,1 is praised. With her he showed the sad fate of his fatherland.
1. I am not certain this is what the author means by “expressa”. It could also simply mean “portrayed”, “painted”. Compare note for the text on 61. Jacob Binck.
