This is George Hendrik Breitner (1857-1923), a Dutch painter who lived and worked on the Lauriergracht, the canal where my workshop is located. Until February 2015 there will be an exhibition about his work in het Stadsarchief, in a beautiful building that alone is worth paying a visit.
The reason why I’m telling you this, is because of the painting underneath which can be found at the Rijksmuseum. It’s called the Corner of Lauriergracht and tweede Laurierdwarsstraat. That’s exactly where my workshop is!
