Description Two horses are pulling a cart across a flat beach; two figures are in the sea to the left. Anthonij (Anton) Rudolf Mauve was a Dutch realist painter who was a leading member of the Hague School. He was a very significant early influence on his cousin-in-law Vincent van Gogh. Most of Mauve's works show people and animals in outdoor settings. The painting YORAG : 562 seems to be influenced by the art of the Impressionists; another undated painting by Mauve which is close in theme, style and colours is in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris (Gathering Seaweed (Le ramassage du goémon), RF 2552, ).

Notes At the Yorkshire Fine Art and Industrial Institution Exhibition in 1879 there was a painting described as 'Carting Sea Weed' by Mauve (no. 963), which belonged to Mr. Hanson Freeman, but it is uncertain if this might refer to YORAG : 562, as the painting was catalogued in the section of watercolour drawings.
