Portrait of the 'Middelburg'? 40 guns, a ship of the Zeeland Admiralty, built in 1653, and is last mentioned in 1691. by Willem van de Velde the Elder zoom

Portrait of the 'Middelburg'? 40 guns, a ship of the Zeeland Admiralty, built in 1653, and is last mentioned in 1691.

Name of ship on mount differs from that in the Van de Velde catalogue. The 'Middelburg', viewed from the starboard quarter. The fore and main topsails, driver and mainsail are loosed. There is a flag and pendant at the fore. On the tafferel (the upper part of a vessel's stern) are the arms of Zeeland on a round shield, crowned and supported by two savages, with their legs crossed, holding clubs. Above are crossed anchors and a castle for Middelburg, and between the slingerlijsts (moulding across the stern of a Dutch ship below the tafferel), a pitcher for Vlissingen (Flushing). The drawing is inscribed on the reverse in a late hand 'Wapen van middelburg'. However, there is also a cut inscription in van de Velde's hand '
