Emanuel de Witte

Emanuel de Witte lived for many years in Delft - in fact, his daughter was baptized in the Old Church in Delft that is represented here. Sketchbook in hand, he would study church interiors, and men would compose his paintings in the studio. De Witte painted hundreds of such interiors, capturing their spaciousness and light. He was a master interpreter of atmosphere.
