Dutch ships running down onto a rocky shore
The danger to shipping presented by rocky shores is frequently explored by 17th century Dutch marine artists. The presence of large fish or whale is also a common motif in the early part of the century and derives from the work of H.C. Vroom 1566-1640. Generally it represents the unknown, monstrous dangers of the deep. The ship in the centre foreground flies the Dutch flag and ensign, and has been painted in careful detail.
