At the dawn of the 20th century, Amsterdam’s rapidly changing face served as the setting for photographer and decorative painter Heinen. With camera at hand, he climbed tall buildings, such as the Paleis voor Volksvlijt (Palace for Art and Industry), which burned down in 1929, and the Rijksmuseum, to take his panoramas.
