Nieuwkerkse Creek, Surrounding Scherpbier, The Netherlands
The Nieuwerkerkse Creek (also: Nieuwkerkse Kreek) is a creek and nature reserve in the Nieuwe Groedsche or Oude IJvepolder south of the Dutch village of Groede. It was a side arm of the Nieuwerhavense Gat, which was created as a result of the inundations of 1583. In 1613 this estuary was dammed by the Krabbedijk. To the west it erratically splits in two. Joop van Egmond (MOND) painted this scene on paper with a rough structure, so that a special effect is created. This artwork comes with a BARTH 1828 aluminum frame and is protected with glass. Disclaimer: Photographing water colors is very difficult. It looks like the paper is extremely bumpy, but in reality it is barely visible to the naked eye.
