Condition Report

The panel is cradled, flat and stable. The paint surface is relatively clean but the varnish is discoloured. Small, scattered discoloured retouchings are visible particularly in the blank expanse of wall, as well as in the point of the central arch and in the foreground, notably to the centre of the lower margin. Inspection under ultraviolet light confirms these as apparently an older campaign of retouching just visible beneath the extremely milky varnish. More recent retouchings on top of this are found in the mourning boards. The panel is in overall good condition.

Provenance

J.K. Verloop, Bussum, by 1966.

Literature

C. Lawrence, Gerrit Adriaensz. Berckheyde (1638-1698): Haarlem Cityscape Painter, Doornspijk 1991, p. 40, cat. no. 53b (as circa 1675).

Catalogue Note

Gerrit Berckheyde depicted the exterior of St Bavo's on a number of occasions. His views of the church's interior, however, are much more scarce, and reveal the influence of his older brother, Job. Lawrence (see Literature) points out that it is significant that Gerrit's interiors date from the later 1660s through the mid-1670s, the period when Job was most active as an architectural painter.


One of the mourning boards on the column in the present work is identifiable as referring to a female member of the Bam family, from Haarlem. We are grateful to Guus van Breugel, from the Centraal Bureau voor Genealogie, for his assistance in the cataloguing of this lot.
