Cabinet de Perishot

Témoignage du voyageur anglais John Evelyn (1644).

[1644] We went thence to visit one Monsieur Perishot, one of the greatest virtuosos in France, for his collection of pictures, agates, medals, and flowers, especially tulips and anemones. The chiefest of is paintings was a Sebastian, of Titian.
