Dou was one of the many disciples of Rembrandt who divided the inheritance of his genius.
Very early in life Dou made use of magnifying glasses, and with great care he ground his own colors.
It is the fortieth Fable in that work, and is headed, 'Dou vileins qui vit un autre Hom od sa femme.'
The simplicity of trivialities Dou made the subject of the finest and most precious pictures in the world.
Don't be provokin', Ephr'm—what makes you talk in that Dou'fle way?
Dou remarked that he would still have to work at it for three days more.
Therefore, Dou's natural tendency, instead of being modified by Rembrandt, became only more pronounced.
I Dou't in the least understand you, sir; but I desire at once to know your name, and College, sir!
More than once he borrowed a subject from Dou—familiar scenes, and small pictures of one or two figures.
Rembrandt we have seen was the son of a miller, Jan Steen of a brewer; the elder Dou was a glazier.
