1. Willem Wenckebach
was awarded a bronze medal at the London International and Universal Exhibition (Crystal Palace), which opened on 23 April 1884. We do not know for certain which painting this was (the catalogue has not been traced), but in the light of a report in the Algemeen Handelsblad
its must have been a landscape – this work once belonged to J.L. Beijers of Utrecht. See for Van Rappard
’s medal: letter 448
