About Along the Amstel

The artwork “Along the Amstel” was created by Piet Mondrian in 1903. It’s an oil on canvas painting that belongs to the Impressionist movement, depicting a landscape scene. This particular work showcases Mondrian’s earlier style, which is quite distinct from the abstract geometric compositions he is most famous for.

In “Along the Amstel,” you can observe a serene riverside view with reflections in the water. A group of trees with dense foliage is depicted on the left side, casting reflections onto the surface of the Amstel River. The color palette is relatively muted, with a dominance of greens and darker tones suggesting either a late-day or overcast setting. The painter has skillfully captured the tranquility of the scene, with the smooth surface of the water mirroring the landscape and creating a harmonious composition. The brushwork is loose and suggests movement in the foliage and the play of light across the water. The sky appears to be cloudy, contributing to the overall calmness and contemplative mood of the painting.
