Catalogue Note

Inspired by an earlier version of 'Fishermen', woven by the workshop of V. Leyniers D.L. earlier in the 18th century. The present tapestry is very similar to a weaving of Packing and Carting Fish, from a set of tapestries originally belonging to the Earl of Crawford and Balcarres, illustrated in Marillier, Handbook to the Teniers Tapestries, 1932, pg. 55, & pl.40b, although the present example is woven in reverse of the original composition and is a later version.
