Salomon de Bray
Putti Bearing a Cartouche with Stadholder Frederik Hendrik's Date of Birth

1651 Zu sehen in Saal 16

This large painting comes from the Oranjezaal (Orange Hall) in Huis ten Bosch Palace, here in The Hague. It was part of a decorative scheme dedicated to the late Stadholder Frederik Hendrik. De Bray painted an imitation sculpture with putti bearing a cartouche with the stadholder’s date of birth.

The painting originally hung above a fireplace, but in around 1805 had to make way for a door. Seventy years later it was found in the Mauritshuis attic.

Ursprung

Made for the Oranjezaal, Huis ten Bosch Palace, The Hague, 1651; removed around 1805, when the fireplace was replaced by doors to the Japanese Room; transferred at an unknown date and found in the attic of the Mauritshuis in 1875; on long-term loan to the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage for exhibition in the Oranjezaal at Huis ten Bosch Palace, The Hague, since 1950 (this loan proceeded via the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage, until 2013)
