Hendrik Trip’s Cannon Foundry in Julitabruk, Sweden, Allaert van Everdingen, 1650 - 1675

oil on canvas, h 192cm × w 254.5cm × d 10cm. More details

The Trip family – powerful international arms dealers – owned this cannon foundry in southern Sweden. It was a perfect location: iron ore was mined there, and there was ample waterpower, inexpensive labour and fuel (wood). The family built what is known as the Trippenhuis on the Kloveniersburgwal in Amsterdam. The Rijksmuseum was accommodated in this grand residence in the 19th century.
