Haagse groei versus Leidse krimp. Een vergelijking van de ruimtelijke ontwikkelingen in twee Hollandse steden tussen 1700 en 1870

Jelmer Van Der Zweep
After the economic prosperity of the Golden Age, the Netherlands entered a period of stagnation and decline, which lasted roughly from 1700 to 1850. During this period the city of Leiden saw its population shrink dramatically from some 53,000 inhabitants to around 36,000. The Hague, by contrast, experienced strong growth, from 30,000 to 52,000 inhabitants. This article compares spatial developments in these two northern Dutch cities based on development maps generated by a detailed analysis...

Gehavende steden. De krimp van middeleeuwse havensteden in Zeeland van de zestiende tot en met de negentiende eeuw

Jan-Willem De Winter
The south-western delta region of the present-day Netherlands, the area where the rivers Maas, Schelde and Waal flow into the North Sea, experienced a period of great economic prosperity from the thirteenth to the fifteenth century. The trans-shipment of international merchandise to and from the towns and cities of the interior generated considerable wealth, which was concentrated in the strategically located seaports. However, in the sixteenth century, prolonged hostilities and the repeated silting-up of the...

'Daar het amoveren van gebouwen in deze dagen zo algemeen is'. Het stedelijk beleid inzake krimp in Hoorn en Enkhuizen in de lange achttiende eeuw

Minke Walda
The population of the North-Holland towns of Hoorn and Enkhuizen declined dramatically in the period
1680–1830, sinking to an all-time low at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Between 1622 and 1829 the population of Hoorn almost halved. In Enkhuizen the number of inhabitants declined by over 75 per cent up to 1840, while 2,500 of the original 3,615 houses disappeared. Despite extensive analysis of the economic and demographic decline of towns and cities in the Dutch Republic from a historical perspective, there has...

In de schaduw van Artus Quellinus. Opnieuw Gerrit Lambertsen van Cuilenborch

Frits Scholten
In KNOB Bulletin 115 (2016), Dirk de Vries set about drawing the sculptor and architect Gerrit Lambertsen van Cuilenborch (1597–1657) out of the shadow of Hendrick de Keyser, one of whose chief assistants he had been. In his article, De Vries attributed the ‘Dolhuysvrouw’ (Madhouse Woman) or De Razernij (Frenzy), a statue from the garden of the Amsterdam Madhouse, currently in the Rijksmuseum, to Lambertsen and dated it before his departure for Kampen around 1627/28....

Vrouw in de bouw. De eerste vrouwelijke afgestudeerde architecten in Nederland

Erica Smeets-Klokgieters
This article discusses the emergence of the first female architects in the Netherlands and puts it into perspective by comparing it with the emergence of women practitioners in disciplines closely related to architecture, such as furniture and landscape design. Female participation in professions that required higher or university qualifications was far from self-evident in the first half of the twentieth century. This was even truer for technical occupations, which were regarded as a typically male...

‘Stilfarbe’ en ‘Farbkunst’. De (her)ontdekking van negentiende- en vroegtwintigste-eeuwse kleurtheorie in relatie tot kunstnijverheid, schilderkunst en architectuur

Jürgen Stoye
One hundred years after its emergence, the Amsterdam School still manages to fascinate people with its whimsical forms and bright colours. Although the frame of reference for the forms is known, there has been less interest in investigating the use of colour. The (Dutch) catalogue to the ‘Living in the Amsterdam School’ exhibition touched on the topic visually, noting similarities with German expressionism and the art of Wassily Kandinsky. This article addresses the affinity between...

In gruzelementen. Resten van een Utrechts sacramentshuis uit de Mariakerk in Diemen

Elizabeth Den Hartog
In 1989, during excavations of the site of the Mariakerk in Diemen, which was demolished in 1808, over one-hundred-and-fifty, remarkably good quality, architecture and sculpture fragments came to light. They are the remains of an exceptionally refined Sacrament House that was probably destroyed during the Reformation. It was composed of many vertical elements and of painted and gold-leaf-embellished figures. Judging from the style and iconography, it probably originated in Utrecht around 1460/70. The sculpture seems...

GIS-toepassingen in onderzoek naar buitenplaatsenlandschappen

Steffen Nijhuis
The central theme of this article is the application of Geographic Information Systems, gis for short, as an instrument for spatial research into historical country estate landscapes aimed at increasing knowledge about historical layout, spatial coherence and development over time. This kind of research can focus on individual country estates in their immediate surroundings (house, garden, park, landscape), but can also be applied at the regional scale, where ensembles of several country estates are looked...

Johann Hermann Knoop en de kunst van de geschiedenis

Cor Wagenaar
Johann Hermann Knoop was born at the beginning of the eighteenth century in Freyenhagen near Kassel (Germany), where his father was in charge of the palace gardens. In 1731, Maria Louise, daughter of the Elector and widow of the Frisian stadholder Johan Willem Friso, summoned Knoop to the court of the ‘Frisian’ House of Orange in Leeuwarden. There he was responsible for the layout and maintenance of the gardens and estates. In 1747 the ‘Hollandse’...

Functie en indeling van het Amsterdamse woonhuis aan de hand van een aantal zestiende-eeuwse boedelinventarissen

Gabri Van Tussenbroek
Apart from a keen interest in materials, constructions and dating, Dutch housing research of the past fifty years has been dominated by a typological approach in which the typology of a house is equated with the floor plan, in combination with the external appearance of the building volume. In 2014 this approach was severely criticized in the doctoral thesis of Petra Maclot, who pointed out that it had led to untenable generalizations and ignores the...
