Catalogue note:
The present painting is a example of Van der Neer’s nocturnal estuary
scenes for which he was much admired, both in his own day and in
subsequent centuries. His works were greatly prized by 19th-century
collectors in this country and no less than thirty-two paintings by Van
der Neer are listed by Christopher Wright in British public collections
(Old Master Paintings in Britain, London 1976).
