Established names and emerging artists

The showcased works vary from classical paintings, drawings, sculptures and ceramics to interactive installations, photographs and design.
For a long time this picturesque part of Amsterdam exerts an irresistible attraction for artists. Painter George Breitner worked there and the photographer Jacob Olie visualized the islands with great detail. Nowadays more more artists live and work here per acre than in other parts of Amsterdam. Another reason to visit the Open Studios Western Isles, is walking through the atmospheric streets with historic houses which mostly date from the time of the VOC and 19th century.
