Our Legacy Sweaters
The Windmill at Amsterdam depicts the old Zaandam mill that sat along the Canal in Amsterdam. The mill was used for extracting yellow, red and blue dyes from coloured woods, with the development of chemical dyes. Claude Monet's vibrant use of colours in the work would seem to reference the dyes from the historic use of the building, the colours appearing to seep out into the canal.
