Condition Report

Property from the SØR Rusche Collection is available to view at Sotheby’s, New Bond Street, 13 – 18 September (weekdays 9am – 4.30pm; weekend 12-5pm).


The panel is uncradled, and very slightly bowed. The paint surface is clean with a clear varnish and there are no major damages visible bar some minor frame abrasion along the lower and right margins that have some associated visible retouching.

Inspection under ultraviolet light confirms these and reveals further retouchings in the dark tiles of the foreground; others are sparsely scattered throughout; and a more concentrated area in the upper left corner measuring 1.5 x 3 cm. In overall good condition.

Catalogue Note

Jan van der Vucht specialised in depicting church interiors, having been apprenticed to the architectural painter, Bartholomeus van Bassen. Though he worked in Delft, The Hague and in Rotterdam, Van der Vucht's œuvre clearly reflects the influence of Flemish painting, such as the work of Antwerp painters Hendrick van Steenwijck and Hans Vredeman de Vries. This composition exemplifies the interest that vaulted naves and ceilings held for the artist.
