Arrival of the Boats, Jacob Maris, 1884

oil on canvas, h 127cm × w 95cm More details

Waiting for the catch was a daily event on the beach at Scheveningen. Everyone in the village, young and old, came out to pilot the boats to shore, to haul them up onto the beach by horse, and to snap up the freshly caught fish. The format and composition that Maris chose for this painting draws us into the scene; we seem to be queueing up, as it were.
