The Interior of the Bakenesserkerk, Haarlem
Johannes Bosboom

Bosboom made a number of sketches and paintings of this church, which dates from the 15th century and was partly rebuilt in the 17th century. This painting shows the south aisle and figures in 17th-century costume. It is similar to a larger painting (Amsterdam Museum, Fodor Collection) which is thought to have been painted in about 1860. The National Gallery's painting is broader in execution, and may consequently be dated to about 1870-5.
