Not On View
Sometimes considered to be a trial proof from a series of 15 views around Haarlem.
Christiaan Schuckman, author of the Hollstein catalogue, considers it an independent plate and has never seen an impression bearing printed inscriptions. The consistent numbering (14) on various impressions suggests that at an early date this was considered an addendum to the series of 12 Views in the Surroundings of Haarlem (Hollstein xxxvii.240.1-12).
Nagler and Le Blanc attributed the plate to Izaak van der Vinne.
Recto lower margin in brown pen & ink (possibly in the artist's hand-- there are other impressions with inscriptions in the same early hand): " ‘t out huijs to brederoode" and "14".
Later inscriptions or marks: Recto lower margin in brown pen & ink: ‘t out huijs to brederoode 14 [possibly in the artist’s hand-- there are other impressions with inscriptions in the same early hand]
Verso C in graphite pencil: 11
