A Beach Scene with Fishermen

This is a relatively early work by Bakhuizen and shows the influence of Hendrick Dubbels (1621 - 1707), whose work is also represented in the Collection ('A Dutch Yacht and Other Vessels Becalmed near the Shore').

This seascape was probably painted in the mid-1660s. Bakhuizen is best known for his seascapes, usually with rough water.
