Painting of the week No.15: A Dutch Beurtman Aground on the Terschelling Sands, by Edward William Cooke

This week we visited the Picture Gallery at Royal Holloway in Egham joining a small group at a Look and Learn event, where the college curator, Dr Harriet O’Neill, led a discussion and examination of William Powell Frith’s 1862 painting, The Railway Station.

While in the Picture Gallery I admired A Dutch Beurtman Aground on the Terschelling Sands, in the North Sea after a Snowstorm by Edward William Cooke 1865, which is my painting of the week. Click on images to enlarge. I’ve posted both images in large size so you can view the painting in detail.
