Dutch herring busses on the fishing ground by Willem van de Velde the Elder zoom

Dutch herring busses on the fishing ground

An early drawing drawn with pen and brown ink and grey wash on vellum. It is signed 'W.V. Velde'. A date of around 1650 has been suggested. The drawing style would seem to have some relationship with the technique van de Velde used to make pen-paintings in the 1650s, but the purpose of his drawings on vellum is not known. Like the pen-paintings the drawing is very detailed. It shows a large number of herring busses fishing with two ships in the background. A buss (Dutch buis) was a flute or narrow-sterned vessel used by the Dutch and English for the herring fishery in the North Sea.
