Philips Wouwermans: 'Seashore with Fishwives offering Fish'

Explore the paintings

The white horse carries a fishing net on its back; in the distance at the right two boats can be seen by the shore.

This picture was exhibited at the British Institution in 1818 as the artist's last painting. There is no stylistic reason for this tradition. The back of the panel is stamped with the arms of the first recorded owner, Queen Isabella Farnese (wife of Philip V of Spain, died 1766).
