Due to Amsterdam’s explosive population growth, the city experienced several expansions during the 17th century. This painting presents a section of the city’s world-famous ring of canals. The bend in the Herengracht depicted here was the domain of the wealthiest. When Berckheyde painted this sun-drenched city view, several houses had yet to be completed, and there were still vacant lots.

The direct print on aluminium is the most popular entry-level product and is a truly sophisticated way to showcase art prints, since it draws attention on the artwork.
