View of Turfmarkt and Eendjespoort in Haarlem, Johan Hendrik Weissenbruch, after 1865
This watercolour shows Turfmarkt in Haarlem. On the left is Lange Brug, the bridge that spans Zuider Spaarne; on the right is Eendjespoort or Leidse Waterpoort – the town gate. The scene is confidently portrayed with brown and grey ink on four sheets attached together. Weissenbruch probably chose this dull paper for its colour, which was especially suited to a sombre city scene.
