The Corner of the Herengracht and the Gasthuismolensteeg, George Hendrik Breitner (attributed to), 1890 - 1900

gelatin silver print, h 359mm × w 307mm. More details

The painter and amateur photographer Breitner walked many miles in Amsterdam with his camera, sketchbook or paint box at hand. The absence of a central subject and abrupt cropping of his photographs deviated entirely from the norms of painting. Regardless of this, Breitner’s shots often served as inspiration for his paintings. The negatives and prints were discovered only forty years after his death.
