A galjoot before the wind and Dutch ships at anchor
On the right is a port-broadside view of a galjoot before a light breeze. In the centre, is a stern view of a ship at anchor, a smalschip close-hauled under her stern. Several ships with their topmasts struck are in the background.
This drawing is one of six that are broadly carried out, but with light fluid wash, ruled horizons and lack of precision in the distant ships, suggesting the Elder's work. The work is approximately dated by style and watermark.
