- Drawing w. some foxed spots and one very small brown stain at top centre; yellowed/ browned line in outer margins from former passepartout; some rubbed lines in upper and lower left corner; mount w. some sl. foxing and with traces of removed passepartout along outer margins (affecting the name in lower corner).
= Exquisite drawing with an impressive degree of detail; one can count every brick in the walls of the Nieuwe Kerk. The drawing is very similar to the engraving "Gezigt op het Stadhuis, langs de noordzyde en van agteren, en op den onvolbouwden tooren der Nieuwe Kerke" made after Van Liender for Jan Wagenaar's Amsterdam in zyne opkomst, publ. in 1766. The drawing contains less people and shows one bay more of the city hall. Is this the preparatory drawing for the print? Verso with old price(?) in lower left corner (unread).
