A Guinea merchant ship drying sails
DrawingA near but rapid sketch of a two-decked merchant ship from slightly before the port beam. Fore course and topsail loosed and hauled out to a bowline; main and mizzen topsails and mizzen filled. At the spritsail topmasthead the Guinea jack, a cross on a flag with a chequey border.
This is an unsigned pencil and wash drawing by the Younger.
The sails have been traced on the back, probably by a later hand. This drawing is nearer to the Elder
Willem van de Velde, the Younger
