Until now the only impression we had of these works was conveyed by two watercolours by Jurriaan Andriessen after preliminary studies by De Roore, and by one of De Roore's own preliminary studies. These were published in 1991 by J.W. Niemeijer, who also identified the house for which the decorations were painted as the building on the corner of Keizersgracht and Molenpad. Six old photographs of the vanished paintings recently surfaced at the R.K.D. They arc the sole surviving evidence of the numerous decorations which De Roore painted in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. One of De Roore's less ambitious activities, according to Van Gool, was the enlargement of paintings by M. d'Hondecoeter to proportions suitable for the decoration of a large room. Fred G.
