Fishermen selling their Catch on the Beach
Egbert van der Poel (Delft 1621 – Rotterdam 1664)
Oil painting on panel (oak), Fishermen selling their Catch on the Beach, by Egbert van der Poel (Delft 1621 – Rotterdam 1664), circa 1650. A seashore on a grey squally day with peasants bargaining over fish in the foreground, more fisherfolk and a number of boats behind. Possibly the panel referred to in the 1764 inventory callled ' A Dutch Piece Scheveling Pinx. in the seconm room . This may also be a reference to the possibility it is Scheveningen beach. Not originally in Cabinet or Drawing Room, hence the black slip needed to fit it into the frame, which does belong in these rooms.
William Windham II (1717 - 1761); then by descent to Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer (1906 - 1969), by whom bequeathed to the National Trust in 1969
