... In 1949 the Oude Kerk at Delft was the title-subject of an extraordinary fine etching commissioned by that town's Art Society; its detailing and chiarsoscuro are, again, perfect. By now the draughtsmanlike contours of the architectural elements in his earlier work aer being replaced by lines and points of different sizes, which constitute variously nuanced planes of light and shadow.

(excerpt from the book Willem Hofker - Painter of Bali, by Bruce Carpenter, p. 163-164).



Note: an etching of "Oude Kerk at Delft" is illustrated (full page), on p. 165, in the book titled Willem Hofker - Painter of Bali, by Bruce Carpenter published by Pictures Publishers, The Netherlands.
