Additional remarks Possible direct motive for commissioning the work: visit of the first bishop of Haarlem. This series served a number of purposes. Firstly, its function was to show the age, power, and venerable status of the monastery itself, and of the position of the commanders as religious leaders and overseers of the goods of the order. This series also appears to emphasise the independence of the convent. Under the portrait of Pieter van Schoten the date 1469 is given extra prominence (emphasis added after 1580, when due to the Reformation it became politically expedient to do so), because this was when the convent of Haarlem became independent of the bailiwick of Utrecht. Pieter and his successors were henceforth referred to as not only commander, but also preceptor. They were now equal to the baillif of Utrecht. This may explain why the founder of the convent of Haarlem Jacob of Denmark, who was a baillif, is conspicuously absent from the series. In similar series, founders tend to be the very first portrait to be depicted. Secondly, this series may have been made in response to the reorganisation of the bishoprics in the Low Countries. In 1559 Haarlem became a bishopric and Nicolaas van Nieuwland became its first bishop. He made his entry in the city in 1562, so around the same time as the series was made, and he stayed at the convent for a period of time. It is quite possible that the commander of the convent wished to impress upon the new bishop that he was a hospitable, but completely independent religious leader - completely equal to the bishop himself, and, unlike the new bishop, with a long line of illustrious predecessors.

Completeness • The series currently consists of seven panels: six panels with three portraits each, and one panel with five portraits. The first eighteen portraits were originally depicted on two panels, each of which contained nine portraits. These two panels were sawn into six pieces after being confiscated by the city of Haarlem in 1625. The (now) seventh panel, which was made somewhere between 1580 and 1624, is still complete. See publications by Van Bueren. • Not the original frames.

Technical research
  • research of paint layers
  • infrared reflectography (IRR)
  • X-ray
Specification (technical research) • Research using infrared reflectography has revealed that the portraits of what were originally the first two panels (now the first six) were damaged and later restored. This damage was likely caused in 1573, when the monastery was subjected to an iconoclastic raid. The inventory of that period reveals that several paintings had been smashed. The eyes of the portraits in particular were targeted by the iconoclasts; they were scratched and carved out. • The same research has also revealed that after the first eighteen portraits were made, the commissioner(s) must have decided to make some alterations because they believed that some of the commanders had been forgotten and needed to be added. Several of the existing portraits and inscriptions thus needed to be painted over, as some of the commanders were moved one spot to the right to make room for the new additions. See 'Portraits' and 'Inscriptions' for additional information.

Specification Technical research (infrared reflectography, stereomicroscope, and an examination of paint samples) has revealed that this panel was created in three different phases. The first phase occurred after April 1580, which is when an inventory of the monastery's goods was created, that lists only the first eighteen portraits on the previous panels. In other words, panel VII did not exist yet. During this first phase, the first three portraits on this panel were painted, and a green background and pink balustrade were also added in the space that was left open for the next commander. In phase two the portrait of Cornelis Jacobsz. van der Goude was added to the series. It is a copy of another portrait of his, dating back to 1613 (Van Bueren (1993), 412-4). Finally, during the third phase, for the portrait of Andries van Souwen an extra piece of panel had to be attached to the painting. This last portrait is also a copy of a different portrait (Van Bueren (1993), 414-7), and it was created shortly after 1624. The entire series must have been completed very shortly after Andries' death (9 January 1625).

He was the commissioner of the series, and he was originally supposed to be depicted on the previous panel as the eighteenth commander. However, because a forgotten commander (Hugo van Zeeland) was later included in the series as well (sixth portrait), all the portraits of the following commanders had to be move one spot to the right, and Hendrik ended up being originally excluded from his own series (until the current panel was made).

Sir Maarten is actually depicted twice in this series, because he is mentioned under two different names (Maarten van Campen and Brother Maarten) in the written sources, that were likely used by the commissioners to base this series on. The commissioners must therefore have thought he was two different commanders. In the written sources, Maarten is referred to as commander in the following years: first mention: 23 September 1332 - last mention: 23 September 1332 (as Maarten van Campen); first mention: 25 July 1333 - last mention: 21 October 1344 (as Brother Maarten); first mention: 27 January 1348 - last mention: 25 May 1349 (as Brother Maarten); first mention: 15 June 1357 - last mention: 15 July 1357 (as Brother Maarten).

Additional remarks • The dates mentioned in the inscriptions do not always correspond with information in the written sources, see: Van Bueren (1991), pp. 78-9. In the written sources, Hugo van Zeeland is referred to as commander in the following years: first mention: 17 August 1353 - last mention: 17 August 1353 (as Hugo van Zeeland); first mention: 18 September 1353 - last mention: 18 September 1353 (as Sir Hugo). • Technical research has revealed that this inscription used to read: Int Jaer ons heer M.ccc. ende Lv was [heer] jan van leyden Commendeur (In the year of Our Lord 1355 sir Jan van Leyden was commander). It was painted over because the portraits were all moved one position to the right, after a previously forgotten commander (Hugo van Zeeland) was inserted into the series. This repositioning occurred from the sixth commander in this series, up to and including the eighteenth commander. However, given the fact that the written sources mention multiple commanders called Hugo in the same time period, one may wonder if they were actually all the same person, in which case the inclusion of this portrait and its inscription would have been unnecessary. See: Van Bueren (1991), pp. 31-2, 51.

Additional remarks The dates mentioned in the inscriptions do not always correspond with information in the written sources, see: Van Bueren (1991), pp. 78-9. Sir Maarten is actually depicted twice in this series, because he is mentioned under two different names (Maarten van Campen and Brother Maarten) in the written sources, that were likely used by the commissioners to base this series on. The commissioners must therefore have thought he was two different commanders. In the written sources, Maarten is referred to as commander in the following years: first mention: 23 September 1332 - last mention: 23 September 1332 (as Maarten van Campen); first mention: 25 July 1333 - last mention: 21 October 1344 (as Brother Maarten); first mention: 27 January 1348 - last mention: 25 May 1349 (as Brother Maarten); first mention: 15 June 1357 - last mention: 15 July 1357 (as Brother Maarten).

Additional remarks Also known as Hendrik van Zwolle. He probably joined the convent in Haarlem in or after 1520. He was the coadjutor of Simon van Sanen. He was one of the few commanders after Willem van Schoten, who did not remain in function as commander until the day of his death. Instead he resigned in 1571, due to his age and bad health (he suffered from dementia). His date of birth is uncertain. There is mention of a Hendrik van Zwolle who was a priest in the 'Werffummer cloester' (convent in Warffum). If these individuals were one and the same person, and Hendrik became a priest at the age of 25, then he must have become at least 91 years old.

Additional remarks In 1310 Gerard van Tetterode, a canon of the Mariakerk in Utrecht, donated a house and landed property in Haarlem to the bailiwick of the Order of St John, so that a convent could be founded there. Jacob van Denemarken (of Denmark), who was the bailiff of the Catharijneconvent in Utrecht, and who would later become the auxiliary bishop of Utrecht, appointed Arend as his vice commander in Haarlem. The bond between the convents in Utrecht and Haarlem was initially very close, and the fourteenth-century commanders in Haarlem could only act with permission of the bailiff. Arend was specifically instructed to accept more members into the new convent, especially priests and male conventuals. Nuns were present for only a brief period after the convent's foundation, after which they were no longer part of the community. Arend was buried in the convent in Haarlem.

He did not hold the position for life, as most of his successors later would. During his term, which was marked by a troubled relationship with Rutger Pauwelsz. the bailiff of Utrecht, Willem van Schoten managed to secure a more independent role and status for the convent of Haarlem, in respect to the bailiff in Utrecht. His successor Pieter van Schoten would take this development even further.
