People worldwide are familiar with the Rotterdam Gate, even though it’s been gone for almost two centuries. The gate is prominently displayed in the painting titled View of Delft. Back then, this gate still stood in all its glory. With its two spires, the gate was very similar to the Oostpoort, the only Delft city gate remaining today. Walk past the majestic Oostpoort and briefly find yourself in Vermeer’s time.
