Oil on Board Dutch Renowned Artist Jan Beekhout b1937 'Barge Moored on Canel'
This is the smaller of two Jan Beekhout b1937 paintings we currently have on offer. Beekhout is a highly rated Dutch artist specialising in landscapes in and around Amsterdam and his works are highly prized around the world as not many come to the market. Beekhout's works have been sold at auction houses as far afield as Australia and the USA and are also found in many art galleries.
This painting shows a sailing barge moored on the bank of the Amstel river in Amsterdam. The painting is very detailed and has figures on a rowing boat and others including a man moving a barrel in the foreground. In the background are other boats and one of the river locks that protect the city from flooding.
This is a larger work than most found by Beekhout and this makes it even more collectable. The work would enhance any house of office and would also make a good present bringing back memories of a visit to Amsterdam. The painting measures 50 x 60 cm unframed and 66 x 76 cm framed.
