The Sint-Antoniuswaag in Amsterdam, Isaac Ouwater, c. 1780 - c. 1790

oil on canvas, h 60cm × w 74cm. More details

The subject of this painting, the 15th-century Saint Anthony weigh house, is largely cast in shadow. Ouwater also introduces strong contrasts of light in the foreground: the table with collectibles catches the sunlight, while the foreground is dark. In this painting and its pendant, The Nieuwe Kerk and the Town Hall on the Dam, bright, white accents on dresses, animals and lampposts enliven the compositions.
