The Nieuwe Haarlemse Sluis at the Singel, known as ‘Souvenir d’Amsterdam’, Matthijs Maris, 1871

oil on canvas, h 46.5cm × w 35cm More details

When Jacob returned to the Netherlands, Matthijs had to support himself in Paris. His financial worries explain why he reused an already painted canvas for this work. Beneath this city view is a landscape with a ferry; probably an oil sketch Jacob had left behind. Parts of this underlying composition are still visible. The bright green brushstrokes in the brown foreground at the right are from the overgrown bank underneath.
