More Information: This painting shows inshore fishermen using a baited line in the English Channel. Turner based it on a sketchbook drawing of 1816 and a watercolour of 1818. A critic described the painting as 'a beautiful marine piece'. It is probably a pair with the painting St Michael's Mount, Cornwall, also in the V&A.
