SAENREDAM, Pieter Jansz
(b. 1597, Assendelft, d. 1665, Haarlem)

Interior of the Church of St Anne in Haarlem

Oil on panel, 66 x 93 cm
Frans Halsmuseum, Haarlem

Saenredam drew and painted the church precisely according the linear perspective. All the (imaginary) lines lead to a vanishing point. Even so there are some mistakes, the columns to the right of the foremost candelabrum and its opposite number were never built.
