The Konstboeck of Simon Schynvoet is a collection of 142 botanical illustrations from approx. 1680-1750 by Catharina Lintheimer, Alida Withoos, Pieter Withoos, Johannes Bronckhorst and Pieter Holsteijn. The illustrations were collected by Simon Schynvoet (1652-1727), an amateur-garden designer and art collector. Seven of the most striking gouaches were painted by Alida Withoos, for example a Rosa gallica 'versicolor' or French Rose. The major part of the collection, 123 drawings, was made by Catharina Lintheimer.
