VERY RARE ITEM* * * * Gerrit Groenewegen originally was a ship’s carpenter like his father, but in 1779, after an industrial accident, he turned to the arts by entering an apprenticeship with Nicolaes Muys (1740-1808) in Rotterdam. Following his former profession he preferred ship and harbor pictures which he recorded in numerous drawings and etchings, which were very wanted for their exact knowledge of construction.
