Stranded Sperm Whale (aka Beached wale near Beverwijk)[1] is a master print by Dutch artist Jan Saenredam (1565–1607). On 19 December 1601, a sperm whale washed up near Beverwijk. Crowds of people came to see the sight. Among them Jan Saenredam, who made a print of it. He has depicted himself drawing on the left.

Dominique Vivant satirized the genre of the beached whales in Le Phallus phénoménal.
