Petit-Point Panel, 'The Fish Quay', After Teniers

Petit-Point Panel, 'The Fish Quay', After Teniers

One of a pair of large petit-point panels, this highly decorative piece depicts a late 19th century impression of the famous 17th century Teniers tapestries known as the 'Fishing' tapestries. This piece depicts 'The Fish Quay', capturing the moment the fishermen arrive at the harbour to drop off their catch. It is full of wonderful detail, boats in the harbour, a seascape, fishermen offloading their catch and expressively drawn fish on the quay. Note the castle to the right background. The composition is framed by an acanthus leaf border on an emerald green background. The workmanship of these pieces is exceptional. The colours are exquisite, and the figures are expertly drawn. Note also the excellent size. These pieces have survived in remarkable condition and would make a wonderful decorative statement in the right location. The price is £15,000 for the pair.
