Before Klinkert moved to Texel with his newly wed wife Francien they lived a few years in Amsterdam- Zuid (ca. 1953 - 1957) .
In this period he made a lot of skteches of the city centre and made later on in his atelier his 'Amsterdam watercolors'. Some sketches and watercolor paitings stood example for oil works.
But nature was his favourite subject; so his Amsterdam work is limited.
