A wijdschip, boeier yacht and Dutch ships in a light breeze
A lee-quarter view of a boeier yacht in the foreground and a large wijdschip on her weather bow, both close-hauled on the port tack. There is a ship running down across their bows.
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.
