    JANTJE.....

    JANTJE

    He is the Count's son.......i.e. according to the children's song:

    In Den Haag daar woont een graaf
    en zijn zoon heet Jantje.
    Als je vraagt waar woont je Pa
    dan wijst hij met zijn handje....
    Met zijn vinger en zijn duim...
    Op zijn hoed draagt hij een pluim
    aan zijn arm een mandje,
    dag, mijn lieve Jantje!

    Translation:

    In The Hague lives a count
    and he has a son named little John.
    Whenever you ask little John : where does your father live,
    he will point out with his little hand...
    with his finger and his thumb
    on his hat is a nice plume
    At his arm a little basket
    Byebye, dear little Johnny!

    Here he is: at the Vijverberg.

    Abraham Bredius was an art Historian and collector and between 1895 and 1922 he was also director of the Mauritshuis. He died in 1946 and left his collection of 17th and 18th century art to the city of The Hague. It included paintings by Jan Steen and Rembrandt. The museum is housed in a lovely 18th century mansion on the north side of the Hofvijver. It houses antique furniture, porcelain and lovely silverwork.
