Donkey Rides on the Beach, Isaac Israels, c. 1890 - c. 1901

oil on canvas, h 51cm × w 70cm. More details

In contrast to Hague School painters, Isaac Israels depicted the carefree, touristic aspect of the seaside resort of Scheveningen. He often used models for these scenes – in this case, his acquaintances Suze Pont, Agatha Pauw and her little sister. Israels worked rapidly: ‘Never work too much, no more than two hours at a stretch, do not fuss too long, otherwise you will lose your freshness.’
