Frijtom Dutch Landscape
Aronson Antiquairs, © 2018
This photograph was commissioned by Aronson Antiquairs, Amsterdam with Delftware objects from the collection.
The photographs shows a typical Dutch landscape plaque painted by Frederik van Frijtom (circa 1632 – 1702). Van Frijtom trained to be an easel painter, but he primarily painted earthenware, translating his drawings of the Dutch countryside onto faience. Interestingly, Van Frijtom was one of the rare independent pottery painters in Delft. He received the guild’s permission to work on his own, rather than being employed by one of the potteries. This permission was only granted to artisans who were disabled, who could only work in the privacy of their own studio, or who possessed technical secrets.
