De Heerengracht. Le Heerengracht.
Lithograph with fine hand colour and large margins. Printed area 210 x 235mm (8¼ x 9¼").
A view of the Herengracht (Lord's Canal), the first of the three major canals in the centre of Amsterdam, specifically the Gouden Bocht ('Golden Bend'), flanked by the fashionable mansions owned by Amsterdam's elite. The Universiteitsbibliotheek Leiden attributes the view to the artist Vincent van Gogh. However it is more likely that the publisher was his uncle, an art dealer who was named Vincent after his own father (thus properly 'junior') and referred to in van Gogh's letters as 'Uncle Cent'.
