Die ghene dan de welcke haere ooghen door de daghelicksche oeffeningh van een ghestaedighe opmerckinghe tot dese onmoeyelicke vaerdigheyd van een onwedersprekelick oordeel ghebraght hebben, plagten de meeste kracht haerer Konst-kennisse daer in voornaemelick te bewijsen, datse d’originelen staends-voets van de copijen weten t’onderscheyden. d’Oorspronckelicke wercken die de treffelicke Meesters nae ’t leven selver ghemaeckt hebben, worden alhier door de naem van originele stucken te verstaen ghegeven; de copijen daer en teghen en sijn anders niet dan d’afteyckeninghen, ofte uytdrucksels, ofte afsetsels, ofte naemaelsels diemen nae ’t oorspronckelicke stuck heeft afgheteyckent en naeghemaelt. De rechtsinnighe Konst-kenners plaghten oversulcks ind’oorspronckelicke stucken de volkomene kracht van een levendige bevalligheyd te vernemen; daerse nochtans in de naemaecksels maer allen in de ghebrekelicke lammigheyd van een ontleende welstandigheyd ghewaer te worden.

[Suggested translation, Marije Osnabrugge:] Those who have developed their eyes to this tireless ability of an incontradictable judgement through the daily practice of a steady observation, tend to demonstrate the most power of their knowledge of art by knowing to immediately distinguish the originals from the copies. The original works that the competent Masters have made after life itself, are understood here wit the term of original pieces; the copies on the other hand are nothing else than the drawings after it, or the offprints, or casts, or paintings after it that one has drawn or painted after the original piece. The frank Art-connoisseurs tend to perceive the complete power of a lively gracefulness in the original pieces; while they only become aware of the defective wretchedness of a flawed lifelessness in the fakes. There is always a graceful pleasure to be found in all the originals, says Dionisius Halicarnessensis {…}, the copied pieces on the other hand, as competently expressed as they may be, tend to show by one element or another that is too cultivated, to not be originating from nature.
