More about this artwork
In the eighteenth century, Willem van Mieris successfully carried on working in the fijnschilder (literally ‘fine painting’) style of his father, Frans, and remained committed to the iconographic tradition which saw fishing and selling the catch as symbols of voluptas carnis—carnal desire.
