Willem Koekkoek – National Gallery NG6472. View of Oudewater (c 1867)

The small town of Oudewater is on the River Ijssel between Gouda and Utrecht. The clock tower to the left of centre in the distance is that of the Grote Kerk (church of St Michael). Much of the rest of the scene is probably intended to be picturesque rather than topographically accurate. This picture has been dated by comparison with other works by the artist (http://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/paintings/willem-koekkoek-view-of-oudewater).
