part of a series
In the 1670s Christoffel Pierson made a series of drawn copies after the cartoons for the windows in the Sint Janskerk (Gouda), and produced a new, full size cartoon as substitute for a missing original. A new series of copies was made by Arent Lepelaer and Julius Caesar Boëthius in 1688-1727. All these drawings are still property of the church.
Iconclass codes and text contain specific scenes and names. An Iconclass code or notation is a code from the multi-lingual Iconclass system for subject retrieval. For more information about this system, see www.iconclass.nl.
While according to the print by Tanjé the drawing after the cartoon for this window (reproduced by Tanjé) was made by Boëthius, the copy known today and described here is signed by Lepelaer. Either the inscription in the print is an error, or two copies existed.
