Catalogue Note

A copy of this painting (26.3 x 37.8 cm.) from the collection of Sir Harald Samuel, at Wych Cross Place, Sussex, is now in the collection at Mansion House, London.1 What is likely to be a second copy (26.5 x 37.5 cm.)2 was sold by order of the trustees of the North Carolina Museum of Art, New York, Christie's, 5 June 1985, lot 109, although it's hard to be sure that this and the Mansion House copy are not one and the same. In the archive at the Rijksbureau voor kunsthistorische Documentatie, The Hague, is a record of a third copy, previously in the Goudstikker collection, but without dimensions, its current whereabouts, or any further information.

This lot is offered with a copy of an expertise written by Dr. Schultz, dated 28 August 1994, in which he notes the good condition of the panel, as well as the effective way in which Van der Neer has depicted the atmosphere, the clouds and the glistening ice, as well as the accurate depiction of the movements of the people.
