Dutch painting in Beyoncé music video


This 2016 music video from the USA is called LEMONADE 2 DENIAL by Beyoncé.

The painting on the wall (at 0:44 min.) is “View on Dordrecht” by the Dutch painter Wim Jansen (1923-1992). It is normally in the Trinitatis chapel, Dordrecht, the Netherlands.

It has now been brought to the Dordrechts Museum; for an exhibition, starting in late October, of paintings depicting Dordrecht.

The “View on Dordrecht” by Jansen is not a well-known painting. Only one depiction of it used to be on the Internet, and probably inspired the makers of the Beyoncé video.
