Ask anything

  • LIsha asked

    what is the symbols of this picture?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered


    I'm not sure what you mean by 'symbols'. From the caption you can read that the statue of Mercury, the god of trade, by Bartholomeus Eggers is positioned on the left hand side of the painting.

More information

The painting excellently documents the expansion of the Exchange in 1668, based on a design by the Amsterdam architect Daniël Stalpaert. The most important change was the merging of the two southern gate buildings into one building with a classic facade on the Rokin. A statue of Mercury, the god of trade, by Bartholomeus Eggers was erected between the two hallways. The sculpture can be seen to the left between the two open arches; Mercury's caduceus staff stands out against the sun-lit fronts on the Rokin.
