Catalogue Note

The Dordrecht artist Abraham Susenier is best known as a still life painter, but early inventories listed marines and beach scenes by him.  Such works appeared on the market (and formerly in The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge) with similar signatures to the ones with which the present pair are signed, but as anonymous works, or as by Abraham van Beyeren or Abraham van Steenwijck. The present two were the first marines to be identified as by Susenier, when they appeared in 1973.
