William I, Prince of Orange, Lying in State, Hendrik de Keyser (I), 1613 - 1614

terracotta, h 26cm × w 61.8cm × d 25.8cm. More details

This terracotta is the model for the life-size marble statue that is the focal point of the tomb of William of Orange in the Nieuwe Kerk in Delft. William was assassinated in 1584. The dead prince is portrayed in a surprisingly informal fashion: he wears a fur-lined tabard and a nightcap, a favourite garb for scholars in their study. He seems to be lying down for just a moment to rest.
