I saw something new in Amsterdam, a sign with the name of the street with a painting next to it. The street is named "First Van der Helststreet" after a famous dutch portrait painter, Bartholomeus van der Helst (1613-1670) who was a contemporary of Rembrandt and became the most popular painter of portraits in the city of Amsterdam. His most famous portrait is this half length portrayal of Gerard Andriesz Bicker, the son of Andries Bicker, the mayor of Amsterdam whom he also painted in 1642. This portrait is often used to depict obesity as a symbol of wealth of the Amsterdam merchants of the Dutch Golden Age. It was probably painted in 1637 and at that time Gerard must have been 17 years old and held the titles Lord of Engelenburg and High Bailiff of Muiden.
And now so many centuries later on everybody in the street can look at that "Dicken Bear"as he was called in a mocking pamphlet in 1650 when he fled in a boat for the troops of William II.
Don't know you can call this a mural, but it is on a wall and a painting so I link it anyway here.
