There lies a city on the river IJssel, on the edge of heather and wood, it is surrounded still by moats, and walls are covered with moss. Between the northern edge of the Veluwe and the Ijssel is scenic Hattem. The Hanseatic city has been a source of inspiration for painters for centuries, which is not surprising: the town is not only ‘photogenic’, but it is also nestled in beautiful surroundings with woods and water a stone’s throw away.
