Impressions of Amersfoort

Impressions of Amersfoort


The 'Impressions of Amersfoort. Six centuries of cityscapes' exhibition features paintings and drawings from the past 600 years.

Numerous artists have portrayed Amersfoort over the years, capturing the city's centre and surrounding areas, gates and ramparts, churches and chapels, river views and country estates. This unique selection of artworks provides a fascinating glimpse of the changing cityscape, right up to the start of the current century.

In addition to cityscapes, the exhibition also features some historic accounts of Amersfoort's history, such as the fire in the Tower of Our Lady in 1651 and 1661 Boulder haul.

The exhibition marks the publication of 'Impressions of Amersfoort. Six centuries of cityscapes'. The book was written by author Burchard Elias, former director of Museum Flehite.
