'Pulling the boat ashore' by Eyre Crowe, 1871

A private owner has let me know about a painting in his possession, thought to be by Eyre Crowe and dating from 1871. Pulling the boat ashore seems to show a group of Breton women pulling a fishing boat onto a beach. The composition of the picture, with multiple characters arranged in a line, is very reminiscent of other paintings by Crowe, including At the pit-door (1873)  The Dinner Hour, Wigan (1874), and Nelson Leaving England for the Last Time (1888).
