Emanuel de Witte: 'Adriana van Heusden and Daughter at the Fishmarket'

Explore the paintings

This scene was probably painted in about 1661-3 when de Witte was living in the home of Joris de Wijs and his wife Adriana van Heusden. The picture was the subject of litigation between de Witte and Adriana van Heusden in 1669-71.

Although De Witte is mainly known as a painter of interiors, this work illustrates his considerable abilities as a genre painter. It must have been painted after the New Fishmarket in Amsterdam was opened in early 1661, probably about 1662.
