A states yacht in a fresh breeze running towards a group of Dutch ships
A large group of Dutch ships are shown gathered under a stormy sky. This may record the assembling of some of the Dutch fleet off the Texel in 1672, the year that the artist and his father came to England to work. Lieutenant-Admiral Michiel de Ruyter put to sea in late April or early May and Cornelis de Witt, the Ruwaard of Putten, joined de Ruyter's ship as the States-General's representative of the with the fleet.
