Willy Sluiter (1873-1949)
Willy Sluiter - high tide in Zwijndrecht, Holland December 1995 -
pen and ink on paper - 11x16cm.
Willy Sluiter sketched the high tide which flooded the street on which they lived; this was sketched a year after he finished art school and had moved to Scheveningen. I suppose he was visiting his father, who lived next to the dock on Veerplein in Zwijndrecht. The ferry boat skippers would carry people to the ship.
