This lovely scene contains a message. The fishermen's children with their shabby clothes and meager toys give us a picture of their future. The oldest boy bears the burden of the family on his shoulders and the boat represents the hard life at sea. Jozef Israels painted this theme for the first time in 1863. It was extremely popular and Israëls has repeated it many times since.
