The city of contrasts
Shining with thousands of lights and attracting thousands of adventure-seekers from all over the world, Amsterdam is known as the city of glorious history and fascinating night life. Those touring European sights should definitely add it to their route. With its spectacular mix of age-old baroque architecture and contemporary buildings, it hosts some truly amazing views, especially those facing the beautiful web of water canals a glimpse of which is captured on this vibrant cityscape.
A night on the bridge
On the canvas, we see one of the famous Amsterdam canals sparkling bright with a myriad of colorful reflections. Lined up with trees, lanterns and cutely shaped buildings and surmounted by a low arch bridge, black against the iridescent water surface, the canal reaches the background and seems to get lost in its own shine. The colorful group of houses on the right looks clumsy and funny as if drawn by the hand of a child, but that what makes this scene so charming and nice. With their roofs looming dark-blue in the night sky, they resemble red Christmas candles burning quietly in the dark room. Red and blue clearly prevail on this picture creating a saturated contrast between the chilliness of the night and the coziness of the brightly illuminated street. That makes the painting very vivid and expressive, perfect for your living room or personal study.
