Portrait of a gentleman (circa 1670)

This small portrait on panel was acquired in 1933 as 'Portrait of the artist' by Willem van de Velde the Elder. Despite the initials 'WVV' on the portfolio the sitter does not resemble van de Velde as he appears in the engraving by Gerard Sibelius after the portrait by Kneller in the collection of Sir Edward Walpole. From the dress it is possible to date the portrait to around 1670, rather than 1650, as previously thought. Because of the background of sea and shipping it is possible that the sitter is another marine artist, perhaps born around 1630.
