This picture is one of the finest and most likely one of the earliest architectural views by Cornelis de man, who took up the subject of actual church interiors when he was already in his forties.
Formerly the painting was attributed to the Rotterdam painter Anthonie de Lorme, who painted many views of the interior of Laurenskerk.
