Lot Essay

The present lot depicts the Oude Waal nos. 32-35. It shows us the laundrette of the sisters Veltkamp on no. 34 on the left, and no. 32 on the right shows us Slijterij Veenhoven. The study for this painting was made from his 'studio' -boat, which Witsen used from 1910-14.

Please compare to the preparatory study for this lot in the Rijksprentenkabinet, Amsterdam (RP_T_1964_252).

We kindly thank Mr. J.F. Heijbroek for his help in cataloguing the present lot.
