Pieter de Hooch: 'A Woman and her Maid in a Courtyard'

Explore the paintings

The view is almost certainly imaginary, but made up of elements well known to de Hooch. The wall at the end of the garden is the old town wall of Delft, which bounded the gardens on the west side of Oude Delft canal.

The last digit of the date is illegible, but the picture was probably painted at the end of De Hooch's years in Delft in 1660 or 1661.
