Three wall hangings with a Dutch landscape, attributed to Jurriaan Andriessen, 1776

olieverf op doek, h 323.5cm × w 534cm. More details

From c. 1770 it became fashionable to cover the walls of rooms with painted wall hangings. With their idyllic scenes, they could transform a canal house room into an oasis. These three paintings (together with some missing ones) presented a continuous Dutch landscape, interrupted only by the room’s panelling, windows and doors. They were made for a room in the house at 22 Nieuwe Doelenstraat, Amsterdam.

On display in room 1.7
