There is a story to this painting!

Its of a fishing boat bringing in its catch in a Dutch harbour. The painting seems to be in excellent condition. The frame is in very good condition considering its age - no chips, cracks etc. Its painted on a wooden panel, with wooden frame, altogether it weighs about 2.2kg.

The previous owner really liked the painting, and bought it in good faith from a reputable dealer in London in the 1940s, as apparently having been painted by a renowned Dutch artist by the name of H Koekkoek. The frame is printed with the name " H Koekkoek".

If you look on the internet you will find similar-looking genuine H Koekkoek paintings valued very highly.

A recent expert valuation (see photos) considers this painting is not by any well-known Koekkoek, and is by an unknown 19th century Dutch artist. Despite this, the valuation found that the painting still has value as a 19th century oil, with the value being $750-$1250.

The painting is not so big. The actual painting measures 21 x 25.5cm.
Including the frame it is 36 x 41cm.

Some of the photos make the painting look a bit fuzzy, but in reality it is quite sharp.
