Old Village View

Painting by Piet Emck

This painting is made after thoroughly research by local artist Piet Emck.
A local artist, well known for his paintings of the old city of Leerdam.

He also acts as a guide in "The Hofje van Aerden".
(A group of almshouses built by Mevrouw van Aerden in 1770 on the site of a castle belonging to the Van Arkel family. Here women who had fallen into poverty were accommodated in large houses set round a beautiful courtyard. In a tall building with a domed roof opposite the main entrance is the Regents' Room, with old furniture and a number of paintings by Frans Hals, Gerard Terborch and Jacob van Ruisdael.)
