George M. and Linda H. Kaufman Collection

Jan van der Heyden – George M. and Linda H. Kaufman Collection (at the National Gallery of Art). An Amsterdam Canal View (c. 1670)

Materials: oil on panel. Dimensions: 32.5 x 38.7 cm. Source: http://www.dtm.ciw.edu/users/ruedas/photos/washington/natgallery/dutchcanal_cr.jpg. P.S. I have changed the light, contrast and colors of the original photo.

The National Gallery of Art (e.g. http://www.nga.gov/education/classroom/dutch/dutch_c lassroom_guide.pdf on page 11) gives the following title: An Amsterdam Canal View with the Church of Veere. Following a kind message from *Huismus, a Flickr user, I have decided to take out the reference to the church of Veere because the town is some 100 km away from Amsterdam.
