HERENGRACHT, CORNER BROUWERSGRACHT
2013
The etches of the Canalbook from Caspar Philips are layered on top of the corresponding facades of the canal houses at the Herengracht. In the reflection of the canal we see the current state of the facades. Figures from etches from Rembrandt and Romeyn de Hooghe, drawings from Jan Luijken and a boat from a painting by Albert Cuyp bring the streets to life. Also contemporary figures, photographed by Alice on the streets of Amsterdam, walk around inside Amsterdam’s history.
