Between 'Hegreneset' and 'Skuteviken' lies a series of old boathouses and storehouses. These were originally used to store merchandise, primarily dried fish. The oldest houses in 'Sandviken' are dated to the middle of the 1600s. Like many other locations in Bergen it has been possible to buy fish directly for fishermen, a popular activity even today.
This painting is based on 'Sandviken' in Bergen, Norway, but do not represent a specific place or location.
