What is this painting I am thinking of

Help me find this painting I think I saw at the the Met.

I don't know anything about art so please excuse my anemic description. I'm looking for the artist and title of an oil painting (I think?) that I saw at the Met around 2 years ago. The painting featured a woman on a rock with waves crashing behind her. I think she was either making fishing net or there was a net on the rock. She had dark hair.

I came to suggest what Ruthless bunny said. If its not that painting (though i think it must be) you can also search their collection online.
