- Curator's comments
- This plate is part of a series of twenty-four illustrations to the third edition of Jan Luyken's Zedelycke en Stichtelyke Gezangen; published in 1709 by P. Arentz and Cornelis van der Sys in Amsterdam. The first edition was published in 1698 by Willem de Coup (without illustrations); the second edition was published in 1704 by P. Arentz and Cornelis van der Sys in Amsterdam (but with only twenty-three illustrations; this plate missing in that earlier edition).
For other illustrations of the third edition (which were also used in the second edition but in a different order) see also 1866,1208.1034-1037.
The image is based on the story of Jeske Klaas (Jeske Claes), a Dutch woman who had been crippled for fourteen years, when in 1676 she had a vision of a young boy standing in her bedroom, who told her God would make her walk again.
