A triptych by Gérard de Lairesse (1640-1711) adorns the ceiling in the Ballroom of the Peace Palace. In 1903, the paintings appeared at an auction and were bought by the Carnegie Foundation for the to-be-built Peace Palace. At the time it was assumed that the paintings symbolized a Triumph of Peace and referred to the Peace of Münster. In the three pieces Unity, Freedom, and Safety are represented, the opposites of the virtues in the Arms of the City of Amsterdam, Courage, Resolution, and Mercy. [1]
