 Philips Koninck - AMAM
His drawing of about 1654-55, representing the Raising of Tabitha, shows the saint kneeling alone at the deathbed;3 the other drawing, datable to 1662-65, depicts Peter sending the mourners from the room before beginning his prayers.
Koninck's drawing contrasts spare, angular pen lines and delicate layers of ink wash. The summary, economical treatment of form is found in several related drawings, which have been dated by Sumowski to the late 1650s.
Within this group, the Oberlin drawing is closest to two versions of Christ and the Woman Taken in Adultery (both in Dresden),5 Haman Before Ahasuerus (Boston),6 and The Good Samaritan and the Wounded Man on a Mule en route to the Inn(Paris).

Morrill, for example, disparages the Levellers, the "whirligig of ideas," and the whole ferment of the 1650s that ultimately "mattered little" (109-110).
Of course Hill, too, understood that the radicals of the 1650s were ultimately defeated, but that did not stop him from admiring their cause.
By contrast, the conservative undertone and insistent negativism of the present book rob the period of its excitement.
