Pieter de Keyser
Pieter de Keyser was a Dutch Golden Age architect and sculptor. He followed in the footsteps of his father Hendrick de Keyser and completed a number of Hendrick de Keyser's buildings after his death in 1621. Pieter de Keyser was died in Amsterdam, he was commissioned by his father to oversee the construction of the Huis Bartolotti house on the Herengracht canal in Amsterdam in c. 1617. After his father's death in 1621, he succeeded him as Amsterdam's master mason and oversaw the completion of the Westerkerk and Noorderkerk churches as well as the Huis met de Hoofden house on Keizersgracht canal. In addition, he finished two other uncompleted projects of his father's: a mausoleum for William the Silent in the Nieuwe Kerk in Delft as well as a statue of Erasmus in Rotterdam. De Keyser designed and oversaw the construction of the Saaihal in Amsterdam, as well as the gallery and boys' school of the city's Civil Orphanage, now the Amsterdam Museum; the Accijnshuis building in Amsterdam is atrributed to Jacob van Campen but could have been designed by Pieter de Keyser.
His work in sculpture includes a mausoleum for the naval commander Piet Hein in the Oude Kerk in Delft, a mausoleum for stadholder William Louis of Nassau-Dillenburg in Leeuwarden, a mausoleum for Adriaan Pauw in the Reformed Church at Heemstede, a mausoleum for Swedish military commander Erik Soop in the cathedral of Skara, Sweden. Pieter de Keyser was married three times: to Magdalena Geens, Magdalena Jacobs, Catharina Beghin or Bagijn, his brother Thomas de Keyser became an architect, but chose to become a painter, although he remained active as an architect. The English sculptor and architect Nicholas Stone was an apprentice of Hendrick and Pieter de Keyser in the years 1603-1613.

Jan Hillebrand Wijsmuller
Jan Hillebrand Wijsmuller was a Dutch painter. He belongs to The 2. Golden Age of Dutch Painting, he is an impressionist of the School of Allebé, better known as Amsterdam Impressionism, part of the international movement of the Impressionism. From the art historical point of view he is one of the 2nd generation of the Hague School, he used the bright color palette of the French Impressionists, too – but from the perspective of a Dutchman. From 1876 on Jan Hillebrand Wijsmuller began studying at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam – better known as Rijksacademie, he had been one of the 179 students of Prof. Allebé – it was well known, that his lessons were based on the current flow of time. In 1877 followed his wandering years, they led him to the Akademie van beeldende Kunsten — Den Haag, the famous Académie royale des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles and the Hague School in its heyday. – The latter brought forth such famous masters such as Johannes Bosboom, Paul Gabriël, the brothers Jacob Maris and Matthijs Maris, Anton Mauve and Jan Hendrik Weissenbruch.
Here, Vincent van Gogh found his way into painting. He won the Willink van Collenprijs for young artists by; this is awarded annually by the Amsterdam Academy Amicitiae. In 1883 he had won this award; the name of his work is no longer known. With his own studio he settled in Amsterdam, his friends included Nicolaas van der Waay and Carel Dake. He belongs to the second generation of the Hague School, but he was an representative of the Amsterdam Impressionism, better known as School of Allebé, too. In his creative works the former life of agile, thriving metropolis Amsterdam was immortalized; the opposite pole are landscape portraits. They include scenes canals and older landscapes with the day’s work of fisherman, his repertoire is completed by the classic Dutch theme – the continuation of the tradition of the coastal landscape of the North Sea. He made portraits of the people of The Hague and surroundings, he was a representative of the plein air painting. In his paintings he combines the influences of the first period of the Hague School, the Barbizon School and the Impressionists.
In his paintings he cleverly uses his own visual language for depth. His paintings live by the harmonious play of colors, clouds and landscape; the lighting is living though the material interactions typical of the Netherlands seasons and climate. From an art historical point of view he belongs to the Hague School, the School of Allebé, the Oosterbeek School, the Kortenhoef School and the Katwijk School, it must be seen as a Dutch art movement of that time of impressionism. His works are characterized by their unique craft skills, his expressions were sketches on paper, oil on wood and canvas. He is buried at Zorgvlied cemetery. 1903 Stedelijke internationale tentoonstelling van kunstwerken van levende meesters, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. 1905 Collection of Arti et amicitiae and Pulchri Studio at Kunstverein in Hamburg 1907 Stedelijke internationale tentoonstelling van kunstwerken van levende meesters, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. 1912 Stedelijke internationale tentoonstelling van kunstwerken van levende meesters, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.

The Hague is a city on the western coast of the Netherlands and the capital of the province of South Holland. It is the seat of government of the Netherlands. With a metropolitan population of more than 1 million, it is the third-largest city in the Netherlands, after Amsterdam and Rotterdam; the Rotterdam–The Hague metropolitan area, with a population of 2.7 million, is the 13th-largest in the European Union and the most populous in the country. Located in the west of the Netherlands, The Hague is in the centre of the Haaglanden conurbation and lies at the southwest corner of the larger Randstad conurbation; the Hague is the seat of the Cabinet, the States General, the Supreme Court, the Council of State of the Netherlands, but the city is not the constitutional capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam. King Willem-Alexander lives in Huis ten Bosch and works at the Noordeinde Palace in The Hague, together with Queen Máxima; the Hague is home to the world headquarters of Royal Dutch Shell and other Dutch companies.
Most foreign embassies in the Netherlands and 200 international governmental organisations are located in the city, including the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court, which makes The Hague one of the major cities hosting a United Nations institution along with New York City, Vienna and Nairobi. Because of this, The Hague is known as the home of international law and arbitration; the Hague was first mentioned as Die Haghe in 1242. In the 15th century, the name des Graven hage came into use "The Count's Wood", with connotations like "The Count's Hedge, Private Enclosure or Hunting Grounds". "'s Gravenhage" was used for the city from the 17th century onward. Today, this name is only used in some official documents like marriage certificates; the city itself uses "Den Haag" in all its communications. Little is known about the origin of The Hague. There are no contemporary documents describing it, sources are of dubious reliability. What is certain is that The Hague was founded by the last counts of the House of Holland.
Floris IV owned two residences in the area, but purchased a third court situated by the present-day Hofvijver in 1229 owned by a woman called Meilendis. Floris IV intended to rebuild the court into a large castle, but he died in a tournament in 1234, before anything was built, his son and successor William II lived in the court, after he was elected King of the Romans in 1248, he promptly returned to The Hague, had builders turn the court into a "royal palace", which would be called the Binnenhof. He died in 1256 before this palace was completed but parts of it were finished during the reign of his son Floris V, of which the Ridderzaal, still intact, is the most prominent, it is still used for political events, such as the annual speech from the throne by the Dutch monarch. From the 13th century onward, the counts of Holland used The Hague as their administrative center and residence when in Holland; the village that originated around the Binnenhof was first mentioned as Die Haghe in a charter dating from 1242.
It became the primary residence of the Counts of Holland in 1358, thus became the seat of many government institutions. This status allowed the village to grow. In its early years, the village was located in the ambacht, or rural district, of Monster, governed by the Lord of Monster. Seeking to exercise more direct control over the village, the Count split the village off and created a separate ambacht called Haagambacht, governed directly by the Counts of Holland; the territory of Haagambacht was expanded during the reign of Floris V. When the House of Burgundy inherited the counties of Holland and Zeeland in 1432, they appointed a stadtholder to rule in their stead with the States of Holland and West Friesland as an advisory council. Although their seat was located in The Hague, the city became subordinate to more important centres of government such as Brussels and Mechelen, from where the sovereigns ruled over the centralised Burgundian Netherlands. At the beginning of the Eighty Years' War, the absence of city walls proved disastrous, as it allowed Spanish troops to occupy the town.
In 1575, the States of Holland, temporarily based in Delft considered demolishing the city but this proposal was abandoned, after mediation by William the Silent. In 1588, The Hague became the permanent seat of the States of Holland as well as the States General of the Dutch Republic. In order for the administration to maintain control over city matters, The Hague never received official city status, although it did have many of the privileges granted only to cities. In modern administrative law, "city rights" have no place anymore. Only in 1806, when the Kingdom of Holland was a puppet state of the First French Empire, was the settlement granted city rights by Louis Bonaparte. After the Napoleonic Wars, modern-day Belgium and the Netherlands were combined in the United Kingdom of the Netherlands to form a buffer against France; as a compromise and Amsterdam alternated as capital every two years, with the government remaining in The Hague. After the separation of Belgium in 1830, Amsterdam remained the capital of the Netherlands, while the government was situated in The Hague.
When the government started to play a more prominent role in Dutch society after 1850, The Hague expanded. Many streets were built for the large number of civil se
The Latin word basilica has three distinct applications in modern English. The word was used to refer to an ancient Roman public building, where courts were held, as well as serving other official and public functions, it had the door at one end and a raised platform and an apse at the other, where the magistrate or other officials were seated. The basilica was centrally located in every Roman town adjacent to the main forum. Subsequently, the basilica was not built near a forum but adjacent to a palace and was known as a "palace basilica"; as the Roman Empire adopted Christianity, the major church buildings were constructed with this basic architectural plan and thus it became popular throughout Europe. It continues to be used in an architectural sense to describe rectangular buildings with a central nave and aisles, a raised platform at the opposite end from the door. In Europe and the Americas the basilica remained the most common architectural style for churches of all Christian denominations, though this building plan has become less dominant in new buildings since the latter 20th century.
Thirdly, the term refers to an official designation: a large and important Catholic church, given special ceremonial rights by the Pope, whatever its architectural plan. These are divided into four major basilicas, all of which are ancient churches located within Rome, and, as of 2017, 1,757 minor basilicas around the world; some Catholic basilicas are Catholic pilgrimage sites, receiving tens of millions of visitors per year. In December 2009 the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe set a new record with 6.1 million pilgrims during Friday and Saturday for the anniversary of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The Latin word basilica lit. "royal stoa" referring to the tribunal chamber of a king. In Rome the word was at first used to describe an ancient Roman public building where courts were held, as well as serving other official and public functions. To a large extent these were the town halls of ancient Roman life; the basilica was centrally located in every Roman town adjacent to the main forum. These buildings, an example of, the Basilica Ulpia, were rectangular, had a central nave and aisles with a raised platform and an apse at each of the two ends, adorned with a statue of the emperor, while the entrances were from the long sides.
By extension the name was applied to Christian churches which adopted the same basic plan and it continues to be used as an architectural term to describe such buildings, which form the majority of church buildings in Western Christianity, though the basilican building plan became less dominant in new buildings from the 20th century. The Roman basilica was a large public building; the first basilicas had no religious function at all. As early as the time of Augustus, a public basilica for transacting business had been part of any settlement that considered itself a city, used in the same way as the covered market houses of late medieval northern Europe, where the meeting room, for lack of urban space, was set above the arcades, however. Although their form was variable, basilicas contained interior colonnades that divided the space, giving aisles or arcaded spaces on one or both sides, with an apse at one end, where the magistrates sat on a raised dais; the central aisle tended to be wide and was higher than the flanking aisles, so that light could penetrate through the clerestory windows.
The oldest known basilica, the Basilica Porcia, was built in Rome in 184 BC by Cato the Elder during the time he was Censor. Other early examples include the basilica at Pompeii; the most splendid Roman basilica is the one begun for traditional purposes during the reign of the pagan emperor Maxentius and finished by Constantine I after 313 AD. Basilica Porcia: first basilica built in Rome, erected on the personal initiative and financing of the censor Marcus Porcius Cato as an official building for the tribunes of the plebs Aemilian Basilica, built by the censor Aemilius Lepidus in 179 BC Basilica Sempronia, built by the censor Tiberius Sempronius Gracchus in 169 BC Basilica Opimia, erected by the consul Lucius Opimius in 121 BC, at the same time that he restored the temple of Concord Julian Basilica dedicated in 46 BC by Julius Caesar and completed by Augustus 27 BC to 14 AD Basilica Argentaria, erected under Trajan, emperor from 98 AD to 117AD Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine In the Roman Imperial period, a basilica for large audiences became a feature in palaces.
In the 3rd century AD, the governing elite appeared less in the forums. They now tended to dominate their cities from opulent palaces and country villas, set a little apart from traditional centers of public life. Rather than retreats from public life, these residences were the forum made private. Seated in the tribune of his basilica, the great man would meet his dependent clientes early every morning. Constantine's basilica at Trier, the Aula Palatina, is still standing. A private basilica excavated at Bulla Regia, in the "House of the Hunt", dates from the first half of the 5th century, its reception or audience hall is a long rectangular nave-like space, flanked by dependent rooms that also open into one another, ending in a semi-circular apse, with matching transept spaces.

Hoorn is a municipality and a town in the Netherlands, in the province of North Holland. It is located on the Markermeer, 35 kilometres north of Amsterdam, acquired city rights in 1357. Hoorn had a population of 72,707 in 2017; the area of the municipality is 53.25 km2 of which 33.00 km2 consists of water the Markermeer. The municipality consists of the following villages and/or districts: Blokker, Hoorn and parts of Bangert and De Hulk. Cape Horn, the most southerly point of the Americas, was named after the town by Willem Schouten, who navigated the cape in 1616; the Hoorn Islands of the French overseas collectivity of Wallis and Futuna in Oceania are named after this city. The origin of the name Hoorn in old spelling Hoern or Hoirne, is surrounded in myths. Hoorn's name, according to Old Frisian legends, is derived from the stepson of King Redbad, called Hornus. Another story about the origin of the name is that it is derived from a sign depicting a post horn in an early 14th-century hanging outside one of the establishments situated on the Roode Steen Square.
A third version says. The author of the'Origo Civitatis Hornensis' assumes. Damphoorn is the medieval name for a weed that could be made into whistles, which grew in abundance in the area outside the dykes of Hoorn. Chronicler Velius rejects this statement because there are no old historical entries that Hoorn was called Damphoorn, he wrote: The name was from the start Hoorn: not derived from the weed Damphoorn, as the current sentiment holds. Velius rejects the assertion that the name's origin is Dampter Horn: a neighbourhood of the village Dampten, which flooded and had fallen into disuse; the name is most derived from Hornicwed, a name, popping up in early mediaeval documents. The medieval meaning of hornic is ` corner', with wedor being the medieval word for water. Many places and neighbourhoods in the Netherlands are called today, Heurne and Horn. Hornicwed would therefore refer to the location of a corner on the coastline: the location of Hoorn at the Zuiderzee. We see hornic in the meaning of'corner' reflected in another municipality in the mediaeval County of Holland: Uithoorn, meaning uithoek, which refers to a certain occupied area at some distance.
It is sometimes argued that hornic refers to a corner in a dike, but this raises doubts: the coast of the Zuiderzee was farther away from Hoorn compared to the present day: the Westfriese Omringdijk ran, originating from the West, in a straight line to Schardam and in front of this dyke there were low-lying tracts of land, where the village of Dampten was located according to Velius. This area was flooded after 1391, following the abandonment of the old dyke. A new dyke was built farther inland, resulting in a bay, now the Hoornse Hop. Hoorn was in existence then. Founded in 716, Hoorn grew to become a major harbour town. During Holland's'Golden Age', Hoorn was an important home base for the Dutch East India Company and a prosperous centre of trade; the Hoorn fleet returned laden with precious commodities. Exotic spices such as pepper, nutmeg and mace were sold at vast profits. With their skill in trade and seafaring, sons of Hoorn established the town's name wide. Jan Pieterszoon Coen is famous for his violent raids in Dutch Indies, where he "founded" the city of Batavia in 1619.
He has a big statue on the Rode Steen square in the center of Hoorn. In 1618 Willem Bontekoe undertook his first and only voyage for the VOC, his story of his travel and hardship found its way into the history books when he published his adventures in 1646 under the title Journael ofte gedenckwaerdige beschrijvinge van de Oost-Indische reyse van Willem Ysbrantsz. Bontekoe van Hoorn, begrijpende veel wonderlijcke en gevaerlijcke saecken hem daer in wedervaren. In 1616, the explorer Willem Corneliszoon Schouten braved furious storms as he rounded the southernmost tip of South America, he named it Kaap Hoorn in honour of his home town. Hoorn's fortunes declined somewhat in the eighteenth century; the prosperous trading port became little more than a sleepy fishing village on the Zuiderzee. Following Napoleonic occupation, there was a period during which the town turned its back on the sea, it developed to become the market for the entire West Frisian agricultural region. Stallholders and shopkeepers devoted themselves to trading in dairy produce and seeds.
When the railway and metalled roads came to Hoorn in the late nineteenth century, the town took its rightful place as a conveniently located and accessible centre in the network of towns and villages which make up the province of Noord-Holland. In 1932, the Afsluitdijk, or Great Enclosing Dyke, was completed, Hoorn was no longer a seaport; the years after the Second World War saw a period of renewed growth. At the centre of a flourishing horticultural region, Hoorn developed an varied economy. During the 1960s, Hoorn was designated an'overflow' city to relieve pressure on the overcrowded Randstad region. Thousands of people swapped their cramped little apartment
The Jordaan is a neighbourhood of the city of Amsterdam, Netherlands. It is part of the borough of Amsterdam-Centrum; the area is bordered by the Singelgracht canal and the neighbourhood of Frederik Hendrikbuurt to the west. The former canal Rozengracht is the main traffic artery through the neighbourhood. A working-class neighbourhood, the Jordaan has become one of the most expensive, upscale locations in the Netherlands, it is home to many art galleries for modern art, is dotted with speciality shops and restaurants. Markets are held at Noordermarkt, the Westerstraat and Lindengracht. Rembrandt spent the last years of his life on the Rozengracht canal, he was buried in the Westerkerk church, at the corner of Rozengracht and Prinsengracht, just beyond the Jordaan. The Anne Frank House, where Anne Frank went into hiding during World War II, is located on the edge of the Jordaan, on the Prinsengracht canal; the most common theory on the origin of the name is as a derivation of the French word jardin, meaning garden: most streets and canals in the Jordaan are named after trees and flowers.
Another theory is that the Prinsengracht canal was once nicknamed Jordaan, that the neighbourhood beyond the canal came to be called this as well. The Jordaan has a high concentration of hofjes, many of them with restored houses and peaceful gardens; these courtyards were built by rich people as a kind of charity. By the 1970s most of these courtyards were in bad shape, like the rest of the neighbourhood. Since many have been restored and are now inhabited by artists and some elderly people. During the summer some of these yards are opened on Sundays during free concerts known as hofjesconcerten. Many houses in the Jordaan have a stone tablet on their facade, a stone sign displaying the profession or family sign of the inhabitants. For instance a butcher displayed a pig and a tailor a pair of scissors, carved in stone above the entry; the first such stone tablets were made in the 16th century, when citizens were ordered to use these tablets instead of big wooden gables that obstructed the traffic in the narrow streets.
Construction of the Jordaan began in 1612. The streets and canals were built according to the old ditches and paths, which explains its unusual orientation compared to the rest of the city. In the 19th century, six of the Jordaan's canals were filled including the Rozengracht; the neighbourhood was traditionally a leftwing stronghold, with a stormy history. Heavy riots broke out in 1835, 1886, 1917 and 1934; the February strike of 1941 started with meetings on Noordermarkt square. The Jordaan had a lively music scene in the 20th century. Several of the most popular musicians now have a statue in their memory at the corner of Prinsengracht and Elandsgracht; the singer Willy Alberti is commemorated with a memorial plaque on the Westerkerk church. The Jordaanfestival, celebrating the neighbourhood's music tradition, is held annually. Starting in the 1960s, many of the neighbourhood's original working-class residents moved out of the city to more affordable locations to Almere and Purmerend. Jordaan INFO
Caspar Stoll was either a clerk or a porter at the Admiralty of Amsterdam. He is best known for the publication of most of the descriptions and plates of De Uitlandsche Kapellen, a work on butterflies, started by Pieter Cramer, he published several works of his own on other insect groups. Stoll's 1787 publication on stick insects and their relatives is well known, it was translated into French in 1813. Caspar Stoll lived most of his life in The Hague and Amsterdam. In 1746, he and his brother Georg Daniel both lived in The Hague, it looks like Caspar worked for a notary: several times he put his signature as a witness. His first wife was Maria Sardijn, her brother was a notary. On 18 January 1761, they married in a church in Scheveningen, they had four children baptized in The Hague. The godfather of the two boys was twice William V of Orange-Nassau and once baron Rengers. Before 1769 Stoll moved to Amsterdam; the couple lived on Haarlemmerdijk near Prinsengracht in a house he bought in 1778, close to Jan Christiaan Sepp, who published some of his works.
In Amsterdam, again four children were born. In 1772 two children died within a few months. After the death of his first wife, in June 1786, he married Anna Elizabeth Kaal from Hamburg, her brothers lived in the area nearby. They married with a settlement on 21 October 1791, after having a baby, born a few months before. Stoll was working hard to finish his handwritten copies. On 22 December 1791, Stoll had made up his will. Before the end of the year he died. On 2 January 1792, Stoll was buried in the Noorderkerk in the morning. With Anna Elizabeth he had a son, born after his death. A year after his death, Anna Elizabeth, a member of the Lutheran church, married A. R. van Weylik, a burgomaster of Edam. Stoll became involved with Pieter Cramer's De Uitlandsche Kapellen before 1774, he took over the entire work after the death of Cramer, on 26 September 1776. The first four volumes were finished in 1782 but Stoll kept working, at a much slower pace, caused by the lack of new material as he himself explained, on the supplement, finished in 1791.
Stoll mentioned that all the butterflies were collected in the Dutch colonies, like Surinam, Java and Sierra Leone. The work was completed "without losing sight of the all-powerful hand of the Creator". In the 18th century this was a sort of automatism, to safeguard a book from being burned. While working on the supplement, he worked on other insect groups, of which he was able to publish a volume on cicadas, one on heteroptera and a volume on mantids and related insects: Natuurlyke en naar't leeven naauwkeurig gekleurde afbeeldingen en beschryvingen der spooken etc.. On the title page of this and other works, Stoll mentioned he was a member of the "Natuuronderzoekend Genoodschap te Halle". With Pieter Cramer De Uitlandsche Kapellen, Amsterdam, it consists of 34 issues in four volumes with 400 drawings accompanied with descriptions of butterflies. Cramer, a member of the literary and patriotic society Concordia et Libertate, dedicated the work to the members of the society, he died. Stoll took over the entire responsibility for the project producing a supplement.
De Uitlandsche Kapellen is a key work in the history of entomology. Illustrated with hand-coloured engravings this was the first book on exotic Lepidoptera to use the new system by Carl Linnaeus for naming and classifying animals. Over 1,658 butterfly species are described, many illustrated for the first time. Gerrit Wartenaar is identified as the painter; the original paintings are in London.
