THE PAINTING: VIEW OF THE GOLDEN BEND IN THE HERENGRACHT 1671 - 1672

Original: oil on panel 57.9 x 42.5 cm bxh

The painting shows the Herengracht as seen from the bridge at Vijzelstraat in Amsterdam. There are still open spaces in the rows of houses and in the buildings under construction. This allows the sunlight to fall beautifully on the Herengracht itself and reflect on the existing buildings.

In the 17th century, there was a desperate shortage of houses, and the canals dug in Amsterdam were filled with large stately mansions for the very rich. These wealthy people were mainly engaged in trade with Asia.

Because this part of Amsterdam had a very wealthy, posh population and because the canal curves in this part, it is still called "the Golden Bend".
