Oil on canvas painting (18 1/2" by 15", 24" by 20" in later frame) of a canal and old buildings in Amsterdam, a church towering (possibly the medieval Oudekerk) in the distance, signed at lower right by the listed Dutch artist KEES (CORNELIS) TERLOUW (1890-1948). The scene is painted in a very impressionistic style by an artist known for his landscapes of the Netherlands in all seasons, as well as genre scenes and still life. Fresh from a local estate, the painting is in excellent condition and is ready to hang on the wall. The stretcher has a red art shop label from St. Hilaire in southern France. If you are a fan of Amsterdam, this would remind you of that city's charming canals and old residences. The contrast between the bright background and shadowed foreground is masterfully handled, as are the reflections in the water.
