olieverf op paneel, h 74cm × w 110cm. More details

The tomb of William of Orange became a much-visited attraction from the moment it was completed in 1621. People like this family – a father, mother and two sons, all dressed in restrained, decorous black – even had painters immortalize them standing next to the monument as evidence of their solidarity with the ‘Father of the Fatherland’.
