Gerardus-Wilhelmus van Heukelem (1834-1910) was ordained a priest on 10 August 1859. He was already interested in art and architecture at an early age and became artistic advisor to the archbishop. His own collection formed the nucleus for the Archbishop's Museum in Utrecht, founded in 1868 and later incorporated into the Catharijneconvent. This portrait medal was issued on the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination as a priest.
