= Provenance: the collection of J. and C. Ulmann (Lugt 3533). On paper w. 2 unidentified watermarks of a hand(?) and a man wearing a hat and a robe.
AND 2 others, both 18th/ 19th cent. pen and brush drawings from the same collection.

= Provenance: the collection of J. and C. Ulmann (Lugt 3533). On paper w. the upper part of a crowned watermark.
- Tipped on 19th cent. mount; somewhat foxed and browned; tear in upper left corner.
= A rather detailed drawing of these ruins. This composition is very similar to the drawing by Jan Asselijn (now in the British museum, inv. no. Oo,10.144), especially the bare tree on top of the wall. This could suggest that this drawing was made around the same time. The stone 'table' was no longer visible on 18th century depictions of the monument. The circular cove at the end, near the vaulted ceiling, could have been there. Nowadays the space has been bricked up. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CXI.
