Description

Johannes Bosboom specialized in paintings and watercolours of church interiors. His models were his 17th-century predecessors, Emanuel de Witte and Pieter Saenredam. Bosboom often dressed his figures in 17th-century costume, as in this work. By adopting a low perspective, he emphasized the rhythm of the columns and the majestic impact of the interior.; Johannes Bosboom specialiseerde zich in schilderijen en aquarellen van kerkinterieurs. Hij deed dit in navolging van de 17de-eeuwse kunstenaars Emanuel de Witte en Pieter Saenredam. Vaak kleedde Bosboom de figuren zelfs in 17de-eeuwse kostuums, zoals ook. op dit werk te zien is. Met het lage gezichtspunt benadrukte de schilder het ritme van de zuilen en de monumentaliteit van het interieur.
