Pieter Neeffs the Elder: 'An Evening Service in a Church'
The church has not been identified and may be an invention of Pieter Neeffs. A service (probably Benediction if it is evening) is about to begin.

This is one of a series of church interiors by Pieter Neeffs the Elder (or his studio) in which the figures are by other artists. Here the figures and the statues are by Bonaventura Peeters the Elder. There are numerous variations of this painting by Neeffs. This type of composition was first developed by Hendrick van Steenwyck the Younger.
