Impressionist painter Willem Knip’s travels to Northern France and the Mediterranean greatly influenced his use of colour and light, which he applied to Dutch settings upon his return. He frequently depicted the tranquil cityscapes and scenes of Amsterdam. In the present painting, St. Anthoniesluis is depicted in the cool yet bright light of an Amsterdam spring. Knip’s sunlit portrayals of Amsterdam’s harbours and cityscapes indeed underline his skill in capturing the city’s calmness.
