In relation ot the neo-gothic revival in Holland we have already seen some examples of the work of Carl Weber which drew mainly on the romano-gothic of the Rhineland for its inspiration.
Here we have an example of the work of P. Cuypers, the other great architect of the Dutcj neo-gothic revival. Unlike Weber, his inspiration was French and precisely in the school of Viellot-le-Duc, A.N. Didron and the French 13th. century – the same influences at work on E.W Pugin, JJ. McCarthy and G.C. Ashlin. It is interesting to see how the same inspirational sources were worked out by each of these architects and given very distinctive personal character.
