Historic Church Interior of the Nieuwe Kerk in Delft, made for the feast of King Leopold I in Brussels, 1848

This impressive and monumental painting by Bosboom was made at the occasion of the great feast for King Leopold I of Belgium in Brussels in 1848. Bosboom was one of the painters invited by the Cèrcle Artistique et Littéraire to create his own interpretation of an admired painting of the 17th century. His choice was a church interior by Pieter de Witte (1568 - 1651). The corridors of the palace where the feast was held were hung with these paintings and they were also published in 1849 in a very elaborate book with lithographs made of the paintings and dedicated to the King.
