De tuinarchitectuur van Johann Georg Michael (1738-1800)

Carla S. Oldenburger-Ebbers
J.G. Michael, who served the Prince of Waldeck at Residenz Arolsen as Hofgärtner from 1740 to 1778, taught his son Johann Georg Michael (1738-1800) the trade of gardener. Jacob Boreel Jansz., owner of the Dutch country seat Beeckesteyn at Velsen, kept up commercial relations with the principality of Waldeck-Pyrmont. In the early sixties of the 18th century he brought young Johann Georg Michael from Arolsen to Beeckesteyn to work for him on his country seat....

Wat er staat is zelden Waterstaat. Overheidsbemoeienis bij de vormgeving van katholieke kerkgebouwen in Gelderland in het tweede kwart van de negentiende eeuw

Thomas H. Von Der Dunk
For a long time the name ‘Churches of Public Works’ was automatically given to the neoclassical Churches from the second quarter of the 19th century, which went up under the supervision (and partly after the plans) of engineers of the department of Public Works. The construction of these churches was State-aided. This name concerned simple brick hall churches without columns with a white-plastered interior and a peristyle or pilaster facade on the front, crowned with...

Deugdzaamheid voor de buitenwacht: de gevel van het huis Cardinaal te Groningen

Victor M. Schmidt
Cardinaal House in Groningen is well-known to specialists of Netherlandish Renaissance architecture (note 1), but the sculptured decoration of the facade, which is dated 1559, has never been treated at any length. Thanks to new archival material the original owner of the house could be identified, which made it possible to discuss the facade as an expression of his status and cultural ideals. The facade of Cardinaal House (so called after its last owner, Mr....

Een Nederlands gebrandschilderd glas in de Heilig Bloedkerk te Wilsnack (Duitsland)

Herman Janse
Although in the Netherlands medieval stained glass windows only have been preserved fragmentarily sources like the accounts of the Lords of Voorne prove that the Dutch art of glass painting was very prosperous already in the beginning of the 15th century. The window Lord Frank van Borselen in 1460 gave to the H. Blood Church at Wilsnack (Brandenburg) had ninety-four panels of which eighty were painted. The miracle of the H. Blood would have taken...

Het Doxaal in de Sint-Joriskerk te Amersfoort

Karel Emmens
Although many churches once had rood-lofts, only few survive. One of the finest examples in the Netherlands is the late-gothic rood-loft in the church of Saint-George's at Amersfoort. It is situated in front of the choir separating the sanctuary of the chapter, which was founded in 1337, from the lay-church. The eastern part of the hall church, where the laymen had their altars and sermons, was completed about 1390, as was the western part of...

Vier ingenieurs als stadsbouwmeester

Thomas H. Von Der Dunk
In the second half of the eighteenth century a number of important developments took place in Dutch architecture, resulting in the rise of austere Neoclassicism at the expense of flamboyant rococo. The ornamental Louis XV style made way for the architectonic Louis XVI style. The aim was to link up more closely with the Dutch Classicism of Pieter Post and Jacob van Campen again, as practised during the heyday of the Republic. The Amsterdam 'stadsfabriekambt'...

De oratie van M.D. Ozinga (1948), het ontstaan van de gotiek en het probleem van stijlperioden

Lex Bosman
In 1947 M.D. Ozinga was appointed at an art-historical institute of the university as the first professor of the history of architecture in The Netherlands. During his first years as a professor his previous work at the Dutch Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission provided him with material for research into the architecture of the Middle Ages. In the inaugural lecture delivered when he officially accepted the professorship in 1948, he tried to find the causes...

Adriaen Dortsman en Jan Six. Architectuur en interieurs van Dortsman aan de hand van Herengracht 619 Amsterdam

Pieter Vlaardingerbroek
There were strong ties between Adriaen Dortsman and Jan Six. This is not only evident from the private house that Six was having built from 1667-1669, but also from the court-house and the country house at Wimmenum. Six's interest in architecture does not just appear from the commissions, but also from his intervention in the town hall of Amsterdam at the time, the books he possessed and the sketch he made of the country house...

De VOC Loge van Wingurla: 'een prachtig gebouw, het schoonste dat in India te vinden is'

Frans Ambagtsheer & Leo B. Wevers
Wingurla - the present Vengurla - was one of the few Indian trading posts that had a political function apart from its commercial one. Notably its situation - approximately 60 kilometres to the north of Goa - explains the significance of this lodge. Wingurla was the VOC (East India Company) settlement closest to the Portuguese centre of power Goa; during the forties and fifties of the seventeenth century this greatest threat to the VOC could...

De architectuurtekeningen van de kinderen van het Utrechtse Burgerweeshuis

Thomas H. Von Der Dunk
In the Topographical Atlas of the municipal archives of Utrecht there is a unique collection of drawings. They were made by orphan boys from the Reformed orphanage on the responsibility of art teacher Arnoldus Koopman who was employed there from 1766 to 1805. A quarter of the 296 preserved drawings fall under the scope of architecture, of which one-third concerns accurate studies of columns and two-thirds are drawings of stairwells, roof timbers and roof constructions....

Van luxe architectuurtraktaat tot praktische handleiding: de Nederlandse uitgaven van Scamozzi's L'Idea della Architettura Universale

Andrew Hopkins & Arnold Witte
The architecture treatise ‘L'ldea della Architettura Universale’ first appeared in a Dutch translation in 1640, published by Cornelis Danckerts from Amsterdam. This first edition in folio format, abundantly supplied with illustrations and text, only comprised the sixth Book of the treatise, on the subject of the orders of columns. His plan of publishing the whole treatise in a complete translation appears from the journey his son Dancker Danckerts made to Venice in 1655 to buy...

Vitruvius in de middeleeuwen: een verkenning

Steven Surdèl
Although no less than 78 Medieval manuscripts of Vitruvius's De Architectura Libri X (25 B.C.) have been preserved, very little is known of the needs felt in copying the text. Contemporary comments are scarce and generally do not show much more than a philological curiosity, the ars architecturae in itself being held in a rather ambivalent esteem, either as a 'free' or 'liberal' discipline, or, perhaps more often, as a modest, 'mechanical' one. In addition,...
