J. M. W. Turner - Entrance of the Meuse: Orange-Merchant on the Bar, Going to Pieces; Brill Church bearing S. E. by S., Masensluys E. by S, 1819. Oil on canvas 
From the Tate Gallery, London: 

Fishermen scavenge for oranges lost by the Dutch merchant vessel grounded on a sandbank in the Meuse estuary. Turner’s title locates this dangerous spot precisely, while Brill church is visible on the distant shore. The picture is a punning play on the contemporary political and economic condition of the Dutch royal house of Orange, which had recently made losses on its British investments placed during the Napoleonic Wars.
