The Amsterdam Outer Canal near the Leidsepoort Seen from the Theatre, Johannes Jelgerhuis, 1813

olieverf op paneel, h 36.5cm × w 45cm. More details

This city view was painted from the theatre on the Leidseplein, where the artist worked as an actor. At left is the tower of the Leidsepoort. From the high vantage point, one sees clearly how the canal called the Singelgracht once bordered onto countryside, which is dotted with mills and farms. The left mill marks roughly the spot where the Rijksmuseum now stands.
