Jan van der Heyden – Ulster Museum U644. A View of the Palace of the Dukes of Brabant, Brussels (possibly the 1660s)

This townscape was probably painted during the 1660s. The palace, seat of government and chief residence of the Dukes of Burgundy, was largely destroyed by fire in 1731 (http://www.nmni.com/um/Collections/Art-(1)/Dutch-Paintings/Jan-van-der-Heyden-(1637-1712)).
