Artist's Description

I found ‘Tante Jans’ (a woman who sold vegetables in former days) in bistro ‘Bij ons’ in the Jordaan, one of the nicest parts of Amsterdam.

The Jordaan, originally a working-class neighbourhood, has become one of the most expensive, upscale locations in the Netherlands. It is home to many art galleries, particularly for modern art, and is also dotted with speciality shops and restaurants. Rembrandt spent the last years of his life in the Jordaan, on the Rozengracht canal. He was buried in the Westerkerk church, at the corner of Rozengracht and Prinsengracht, just beyond the Jordaan. The Anne Frank House, where Anne Frank went into hiding during World War II, is located on the edge of the Jordaan, on the Prinsengracht canal.
