About the artwork

MUIDEN, VESTING AAN DE HOLLANDSE WATERLINIE Plan de la Ville et Forteresse de Muyden ?. Tekening in pen en aquarel vervaardigd rond 1800. Afm. 20 x 27 cm. Reeds in de 16e eeuw ontstond het idee om grote delen van Holland tegelijkertijd te verdedigen, in plaats van het tot dan gebruikelijke systeem om per vesting(-stad) de defensie ter hand te nemen. Door middel van het onder water zetten (inunderen) van grote stukken land, bemoeilijkte men de vijand deze linie te overschrijden. De inlaatpunten voor het water in de linie werden verdedigd door fortificaties (zoals hier te zien in Muiden), evenals de verhoogde wegen (accessen). Met betrekkelijk weinig militairen kon de Waterlinie worden verdedigd. Men liet zo'n 30 cm water op de polderweilanden lopen. Het water was onvoldoende diep om te bevaren en het doorwaden ervan was praktisch onmogelijk, mede omdat alle sloten onzichtbaar waren geworden. Prijs: Euro950,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling)
