The Nieuwe Kerk and the Town Hall on the Dam in Amsterdam, Isaac Ouwater, c. 1780 - c. 1790

oil on canvas, h 59cm × w 73cm. More details

This painting was made as the pendant to The Sint- Antoniuswaag in Amsterdam. In both, Ouwater plays with contrasts of light and shade in a similar fashion. The cloudy skies set the tone. The imposing town hall in the foreground is in shadow, while the Nieuwe Kerk somewhat further back is bathed in sunlight.

On display in room 1.11
