For sale – ‘Hauling the Boat Ashore’ (1871)

‘Hauling the boat ashore – coast of France’ by Eyre Crowe (1871)

Your chance to buy an oil painting by Eyre Crowe!

Hauling the boat ashore – coast of France‘, a stunning painting completed in 1871, is to be sold at auction by Atkins Auctions at Axminster, Devon, on Friday 5 August. It appears always to have been in private hands and to my knowledge, never exhibited. Showing a group of women believed to be in traditional Breton costume, pulling a wooden boat out of the water, it is one of a number of paintings by Eyre Crowe inspired by his regular trips to northern France.
