Moonlight, over silhouettes of gabled houses, is reflected from the surface of the canal and just picks out a group of figures in the bottom corner of the painting. The painting is signed and dated by the Dutch painter van der Neer, who has long been celebrated for his moonlit scenes. This one has been at Brodsworth Hall since the house was built in the 1860s by Charles Sabine Thellusson. He mentioned it in his will as one of a group of paintings in the Dining Room which were ‘heirlooms’.
