About

A ship is running before the wind in port-broadside view in a rough sea, under fore-course and lateen mizzen, with figures visible on the deck and the main yard sent down to the gunwale. The outline of another ship is visible in the far left distance. The painting is broadly treated in the Dutch realist style and while the grey palette evokes an impression of a storm, shafts of sunlight pierce through the clouds highlighting the central ship and the high waves in the foreground.
