Interior of the Sint-Odulphuskerk in Assendelft, Pieter Jansz. Saenredam, 1649

olieverf op paneel, h 49.6cm × w 75cm. More details

Bright, clear light fills this church, in which – as it happens – a sermon is being preached from the pulpit. Saenredam created a sense of space with his consistent use of perspective, in which all the orthogonal lines converge at the same point. This church was special to the painter: not only was he born in Assen-delft, but the gravestone of his father, Jan Saenredam, bearing an inscription, can be seen in the right foreground.

On display in Eregalerij Pieter Jansz. Saenredam
