ARCHITECTURAL SCULPTURES and PROJECTS
Grote Kerk tower project
This early sixteenth century painting shows the tower of the Grote Kerk under construction. In 1457 the great city fire in Dordrecht damaged the church and tower, which in that period also had gradually started to lean. The realization of the upper section of the steeple was well underway; so builders had to decide to take much of this part down and change the plans. After almost two hundred years, in 1626, the present tower clock constructions were built.
