Interior of a Church at Night

The paintings hanging in the church depict, from left to right, Christ carrying the Cross, the Virgin and Child, the Crucifixion and Saint Jerome. The object in the centre is the font crane which supports a font cover.

The numbers 632 on the tombstone are presumed to be the last digits of the date 1632. The style of the costumes of the figures supports this dating. This picture has in the past been attributed to Hendrick van Steenwyck the Younger and Pieter Neeffs the Elder. It is probably by a follower of the former.
