The Stone Bridge, Jan van der Heyden, c. 1660 - c. 1672

oil on panel, h 37cm × w 44.5cm More details

This work depicts an imaginary canal. While it is clearly inspired by Amsterdam models, Jan van der Heyden gave it his own twist. A striking aspect is the way he rendered the canal, which runs from the foreground to the centre of the composition. Adriaen van der Velde painted the figures, which he was regularly asked to do by other artists as well.
