House Bartolotti was built around 1622 on behalf of
beer brewer Willem van den Heuvel Beichlingen (1560-1635).
Thanks to the legacy of his uncle Jan Baptista Bartolotti,
Willem was able to have the house built on the Herengracht.
A condition of the inheritance was that Willem would take his uncle Bartolotti's surname.
The design of the Bartolotti house is attributed to Hendrick de Keyzer (1565-1621).
Two Latin texts are painted on the very richly decorated facade of the house.
On the left the inscription "Ingenio et Assiduo Labore" (through ingenuity and diligence)
and on the right "Religione et Probitate" (through religion and righteousness).
In 1752, the Bartolotti house was sold to the whale ship owner Jan van Tarelink (1723-1791).
Tarelink made his fortune as a trader in oilseeds and whale oil.
In 1756 he renovated the right part of the house and built a completely new four-storey rear house.
Since 2016, the Bartolotti house has been open as a Museum House.
