  "Wtewael's painting strikes me as a seventeenth-century equivalent of a microchip. Tiny in scale, it is jam-packed with information that can send you on infinite journeys of the imagination that spin out in all directions. Less is sometimes more, but sometimes more is more, especially when it is so brilliantly organized visually. No matter how many times I look at it, I discover something new."
