Little is known about the Belgian painter W. Hendriks. He probably lived and worked in Antwerp around 1900, but was not affiliated with any artists' societies, which was the customary way for painters to build up a reputation. The happy return of the fishermen is a skilful copy of a picture by the history and genre painter Henri-Jacques Bource of Antwerp (1826 – 1900).
