MAN, Cornelis de
(b. 1621, Delft, d. 1706, Delft)
Interior of a Townhouse-
Oil on canvas, 67 x 81 cm
This late work of Cornelis de Man was formerly attributed to Pieter de Hooch. The painting is firmly rooted in the Delft tradition then being established by Pieter de Hooch and Johannes Vermeer. De Man's interest in the orderly depiction of interior space in this painting, for example, clearly reveals his awareness of his younger townsmen.
