Roemer writes about him as follows: "Eben dieser Schellenberg hat ... eine erstaunliche Menge von Insecten nach der Natur gezeichnet und gemahlt ... Richtigkeit in der Zeichnung, Leben und das herrlichste Colorit scheinen da mit einander um die Palme streiten zu wollen" (Thanner, Schmutz & Geus. J.R. Schellenberg, p. 144).
