Following his debut in the Ghent Salon in 1871, Jean Delvin soon became a successful painter of figures, portraits and animals. Shrimpers at Nieuwpoort can be seen as representative of the artist’s early work, which was characterised by a realism that would shock no one. The painting reflects the spirit of the middle-classes around 1880, who were highly appreciative of the anecdotal familiarity of scenes like this. Delvin was also successful outside the Salons, which were held every three years. Barely 28 years old, he became a teacher at the art academy in Ghent and was later appointed as its director.
