The oldest city panorama finally to be seen on a large scale!

Het Nijmeegsch Rondgezicht

As of 24 March 2019, Kees Moerbeek and Billy Gunterman present the oldest Dutch city vista in a surprisingly new way. The 'Nijmeegsch Rondgezicht' Derk Anthony van de Wart has been enlarged to 100 times its original size and offers us a unique view of the 19th century landscape.

The 'Nijmeegsch Rondgezicht' is the oldest city panorama of the Netherlands. Derk Anthony van de Wart captured this vista in 1806, from the Belvedère. It shows the cramped fortified town amidst the grand and vast river landscape.

It is for this exhibition that Kees Moerbeek has enlarged the original etchings and has complemented it with information in order to provide a clear picture of life in the beginning of the 19th century. Experience this splendid vista in the Arkelzaal in De Bastei.
