Crab-Catchers

Crab-Catchers, by E. Duncan, from the exhibition of the Water-Colour Society, 1861. Engraving from a painting. 'Mr. Duncan's scenes of rural life and sea life are as endless in variety as inimitable in performance. Now we have him in the happy rural homestead, with sheep and heavily-laden wains; now in the raging tempest on the inhospitable shore; now, as in the case before us, illustrating a peculiar branch of industry on the seacoast at low water. This little production is remarkable for its truth and keeping. We almost smell the seaweed in those rocks and in those little pools where industrious explorers are seeking their prey. In the distance is a bold expanse of sea, slightly agitated by a breeze. This fine little picture was exhibited in the gallery of the Water-colour Society'. From "Illustrated London News", 1861.
