Stechwey, Anthony (fl. 1768-1772) and Turpin, Jacobus (c. 1740-1807/17)

GRONDTEKENING van de NIEUWEKERK in ’s GRAVENHAAGE (Nieuwe kerk te Den Haag, ‘s-Gravenhage).

Scheme of the disposition of the seats inside the Nieuwekerk in The Hague. Published in 1772. Titled above in a ribbon: “GRONDTEKENING van de NIEUWEKERK in / ’s GRAVENHAAGE”. Interesting insight on how society was divided during the services. For example, seats dedicated to women are the most remote (on the left and other seats in the corners; higher ranking women were sitting in front of the tribune, facing the preacher). On the top left and right some heraldic shields referring to the city. Address on bottom right: ‘A. Stechwey en Turpin Sculp.t A. 1772’.

Etching and engraving on paper, trimmed to plate, total: 362 x 516 mm. Some tears along the margins, some repaired; smudges due to handling; brownish stains; traces of damp stain on the back. Very interesting document.
