Whale-oil Refinery Village Smerenburg Whale-Oil Factory

The Whale-oil Refinery near the Village of Smerenburg, A Whale-Oil Factory of the Nordic or Greenland Company on Amsterdam Island at the north end of Spitzbergen ( Svalbard), Smeerenburg on Spitsbergen was a settlement of Dutch whalers. The painter has never been there and combined images and stories of it that he knew. The mountain on the left is probably that of Jan Mayen Island (Beerenberg), alongside the whalers' masts. In the tear-proof oven close to the beach, chopped pieces of whale bacon are cooked on slices and processed into liquid tear. On the left side of the beach is a whale carcass that is flanged. At the rear right are the men's barracks, whale fishery, whaling (materials processed, crafts, industries, agriculture), swimming mammals: whale, Spitsbergen, Jan Mayen, Nordic Company, Cornelis de Man, 1639, canvas, oil paint (paint), h 108 cm ? w 205 cm h 131 cm ? w 229 cm ? t 10.5 cm
