Portrait of a states yacht
This work shows a States yacht, depicted from the starboard quarter. On the tafferel is an oval shield positioned between arms and trophies below two large flowers. There are several full-length figures with a lion and a dolphin below, on the quarters. On the rail above are the Arms of Amsterdam (identified by the triple-X motif). They are supported by two large lions, one on either side.
This is an unsigned offset not rubbed on the back. It has been approximately dated to 1665 by the style of the drawing.
