Old Houses
Presented by the Orchar Trustees, 1987
Original Orchar Collection
Museum number 272-1987-5

Orchar bought this painting while on holiday in Holland. He showed it to the artist Joseph Israels and remarked that he intended to ask Bosboom to finish it. Israels replied that "He may make it better but it will not be so good."

Israels is also represented in the Orchar Collection by two paintings called 'Peeling Potatoes' and 'Evening on the Shore'. Bosboom was a nineteenth century Dutch artist.
