Gerrit Berckheyde: 'The Market Place and the Grote Kerk at Haarlem'
This view shows the market place in Haarlem from the north-west from beside the town hall, the Doric portico of which is on the right. On the opposite side of the square is the 15th-century Grote Kerk (church of St Bavo) and the 'Vleeshal' (meat market) to the right. Both these buildings remain largely unchanged today, but the portico of the town hall, which casts a powerful shadow in the foreground, no longer exists.
