    About

    A fine art print of 'A beached whale near Beverwijk' by Jan Saenredam, 1602. A particularly large number of whales appear to have been stranded on Dutch shores around 1600, and the beached whale became a popular subject for prints. This grand example depicting a stranded sperm whale is dedicated to Count Ernst Casimir of Nassau-Dietz, an aristocratic military commander who is shown in the centre, holding his handkerchief to his nose. The print has a strong - and literal - moral framework. Latin verses and pictorial details in the elaborate frame present the sea creature's death out of it's element as a bad portent (a warning to mankind to change its ways or risk God's displeasure). The frame also includes an alarming representation of the whale in pieces, after it exploded under its own weight.
