Catalogue Note

Hendrik Danckerts was born in The Hague and moved to England following the restoration of the monarchy in 1660 to enter the service of Charles II and the Duke of York (later James II), specialising in topographical works. He painted several views of Windsor Castle, one originally for Charles II himself. Samuel Pepys also records in his diary entry of 22 January 1669 commissioning from 'Mr. Dancre, the famous landscape painter ... the four houses of the King, White Hall, Hampton Court, Greenwich, and Windsor' for his dining room. The subject was clearly popular and consequently reproduced by other contemporary artists.
