A Dutch ship in a storm
A storm scene painted soon after the artist moved to Italy. In the centre, in stern view, a Dutch ship with an ornately carved stern and flying the Dutch flag, is depicted close-hauled on the port tack. She flies the province of Holland's flag from the bow. Fortified buildings stand above an outcrop of land top left. Below is a rocky overhang with trees carefully positioned for dramatic affect. The inclusion of figures adds a sense of drama as they stand or sit under the overhang and watch the ship.
