The church in this painting was designed by Saenredam’s friend Jacob van Campen and was first taken into use in May 1650. With its square floor, the church is built in the form of a Greek cross. The four arms of this cross are covered with wooden barrel vaults. The human figures are in fact shown smaller than in reality. Saenredam probably did this to emphasise the monumental character of the architecture. The two round columns in the centre, on the left and right of the entrance, were never executed and only existed in Van Campen’s draft.
