$43,097.41

About

This imposing 17th century dutch old master painting depicts a typical dutch church interior with elements of the Pieterskerk and the Hooglandse kerk in Leiden, the Netherlands. Instead of merely capturing an existing church interior, the artist of the present work used his artistic imagination and skills to create a magnificent work in a unique composition. Until the 1980s this exquisite painting was regarded as a work by Emmanuel De Witte, however in 1982 it was attributed to Anthonie Van Borssom by the dutch art historian Bernard Vermet. The only other known painting of church interior by Van Borssom was part of the Goudstikker-collection and is on display in the "Schilderijengalerij Prins Willem V " (the Gallery of Prince Willem V) in The Hague, The Netherlands. This gallery is often dubbed the most beautiful one of the Netherlands. Our painting is slightly larger and has a more interesting topic than the one in The Hague. It is truly extraordinary not only in terms of subject and artist but also in terms of condition and rarity. Anthonie Van Borssum was a Dutch golden age painter who was born in Amsterdam in either late December 1630 or early January 1631 (he was baptised on the second of January 1631). He died in March 1677 and was buried in the Westekerk in Amsterdam on the 19th of March 1677. Van Borssom made drawings and paintings in different styles and imitated well-known artists as Jacob van Ruisdael, Jan Wijnants, Philips Koninck, Paulus Potter, Aert van der Neer, Aelbert Cuyp (church interiors) and Nicolaes Berchem (M. de Kinkelder). His works can be found in numerous museums. Oil on canvas, in excellent condition, the canvas measures 58*70 cms. Provenance: *private collection in the castle of Aynho, United Kingdom (as by Emmanuel De Witte) *Private collection Londen (Engeland) *Houstoun-Boswall Collection Courtesy of the RKD
