Pictor Ignotus [ca1920]

[From the Community Collection, a public trust in Agincourt, Iowa]

MIN<unreadable> (ca1920)

“Magere Brug” / Skinny Bridge

oil on wood panel / 8.75 inches by 12.75 inches

ca1920

A bridge has been at that site in Amsterdam since 1691, though the current iteration was built almost two hundred years later. It may be one of the most photographed of the city’s five hundred spans in the center city alone. This late impressionist sketch was painted about 1920 by an artist whose signature cannot yet be read.

The painting is on loan to the Collection from the van der Rijn family, owners of the Bijenkorf Department Store.
