Old harbour Almelo:

Bringing back the water in the center of Almelo is a reason for the City Museum to present a small exhibition in the reception hall with scenes from the old port. Born and raised Almelo painters who portrayed "their" port, such as Van der Aa, Spannenburg and Leeuwen. But artists from the west also found inspiration here; for example, a powerful impression can be seen of the Hagenees Van Hoytema, and an oil painting by Amsterdammer Kranenburg in the fluid style typical of him.
