Born in Amsterdam, Willem Alexander Knip was trained as a decorative painter at the Quelliniusschool in Amsterdam and worked for some time in Chris Lebeau's studio. He was also a student at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. To break free from decorative influences he settled in the Gooi area around 1900, where he developed his own balanced impressionist style. In Laren he shared a studio with several other artists, including Derk Meeles. After 1921, Knip began to travel abroad, and he would continue to do so well into the 1930s.
The Schreierstoren on the Geldersekade in Amsterdam has been captured several times by Willem Knip in a loose, impressionistic touch, both on panel and on canvas. The defence tower used to be part of the city wall of Amsterdam and was built around 1487 on the corner of the IJ and the east side of the city. It is the only surviving defence tower in Amsterdam. In the background, the Saint Nicholas Basilica towers high above the quay.
The work is not signed, but has an exhibition label on the back with the name of the contributor W.A. Knip and his address in Blaricum.
