Two Donkeys, Isaac Israels, 1897 - 1901

Two Donkeys, Isaac Israels, 1897 - 1901

painting, h 46cm × w 61cm. More details

Scheveningen’s donkeys were not just entertainment for seaside visitors; Israels made grateful use of them in his paintings. He portrayed them a few times, either with children riding or a boy leading, or as here, waiting for the next ride. Their keeper lies in the foreground, on the sand. Unlike the more colourful version, left, here the cool hues of the sea and beach predominate.
