Old Dutch Painters Revived

I’ve introduced several times the work of the Dutch photographer Ben Visbeek in Amsterdam. He traveled around the globe with his family many times. But when he features his hometown Amsterdam, a real insider is working, not a tourist! He has enough empathy with the Dutch culture to understand the point of views of famous Dutch painters like Peter Breughel, Vermeer, Rembrandt or lately: Hendrick Avercamp (Ben: “…winter landscapes by Hendrick Avercamp Amsterdam 1585-1634 are some of the most characteristic Dutch panoramas of the 17th century”). Recently there was much snow in Amsterdam and the canals were frozen. Ben Visbeek composed some typical Dutch winter themes. Like a flashback 400 years back to the work of old Dutch painters …
