Plate number 4 from the whaling series: ‘t Loopen van de Walvis.

This plate originates from a series of twelve plates about the ”Grote Visserij” or big fishing, telling the process of the whale hunt and the processing of the whale into oil. This plate is number four from that series and shows a sloop pulling a whale, to wear him out. In the background, we can see several whaling vessels, Groendlandvaarders, between ice floes. It is a fine and detailed painting.

These plates are painted after prints of Adolf van der Laan, after Siewert van der Meulen.

The plate is in perfect condition, with the normal superficial wear and small chips according to age.
