A Church interior erroneously attributed to Pieter Jansz. Saenredam is presented here as an uncustomary work by the landscapist Jan Griffier the Elder, along with two other corresponding architectural paintings. All three were painted shortly after his arrival in England, around 1670-1672. The genre was unusual in England, suggesting that the works may have been commissioned. Two paintings which recently appeared on the English markct shed a light on Griffier as an imitator of such seventeenth-century masters as Poelenburch, Rembrandt, Ruisdacl, Teniers and Lingelbach. This activity was hitherto only documented in historical sources, including Vertue and Houbraken. So successful were the imitations that they were often taken for originals.
