The piece is categorized as a sketch and study and currently resides at the Städel Museum (Städelsches Kunstinstitut und Städtische Galerie) in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

The artwork depicts a detailed architectural study of the choir of the Groote Kerk, also known as the large church, located in Bergen op Zoom. Dürer’s sketch is rendered with fine, meticulous lines, showcasing the texture and craftsmanship of the brickwork and the structural elements of the church. The various shades of hatching suggest depth and dimension, emphasizing the architectural features. The drawing has a delicate quality, with careful attention given to the intricacies of the building’s façade and its surroundings. Despite the sketch-like nature, Dürer’s expertise in capturing the essence and feel of the church’s architecture is evident.
