Dutch flagship with a smalschip and galjoot in a light breeze
In the right foreground is a bow view of a smalschip close-hauled on the port tack with a galjoot running under her stern. On the left is a stern view of a ship with flag and pendant at the main, running towards several other ships in the distance.
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.
