Signature Details
Despite the fact that this canvas had been exhibited and was known in the past under the title "Coming Ashore" a conservator in 2010 discovered a DIA exhibition label on the frame verso indicating the correct title as Beaching the Boats. The label also notes a $1500 asking price written in Alten's hand.
