In the municipal archives in Delft are two unique printed lists that inform us about events organised by the Delft civic guard in 1621 and 1631. In 1621 a shooting contest was being held and the prices were several pieces of silver and a number of paintings. These were mainly by Esaias van de Velde, but there were also works by Bartholomeus van Bassen, Cornelis Jacobsz Delff, Joos de Momper together with Jan Brueghel the Elder, Pieter van Bronckhorst, the unknown Pieter Jacobsz Lupert and two works by Hendrick Gerritsz Pot. In the document he titles of the paintings are given, but it is not possible to trace any of these works. In 1631 the civic guard organised a lottery. A large number of paintings were to be won, mainly by painters from Utrecht. The first prize was a series of the five senses by Gerard van Honthorst, Abraham (or maybe Hendrick ?) Bloemaert, Paulus Moreelse, Jan van Bijlert and Hendrick ter Brugghen. There were also paintings by Roelandt Saverij, Adam Willaerts, Joost Cornelisz Droochsloot and Gijsbert and Gillis Hondecoeter. Prom Delft Leonaert Bramer, Cornelis Jacobsz Delff, Anthonie Palamedesz together with Barthomeus van Bassen, Palamedes Palamedesz and Jacob Vosmaer are represented. Also two paintings by Esaias van de Velde are mentioned. Again the titles are given, but they offer no clues to any present whereabouts. From a notarial act it appears that in 1644 again a shooting contest was being held. Now there were only seven paintings to be won. They were supplied by the still life painter Evert van Aelst, and he undoubtedly painted them. No titles are given. Again in 1647 and 1661 shooting contests were being held. Now the prices were simple pieces of silver. According to this pattern, over the decades the populariry of paintings in Delft was diminishing.
