Portrait of the 'Resolution'
The 'Resolution' shown from abaft the port beam with, on the broadside, twelve guns on the gun deck, eleven on the upper deck, six on the quarterdeck and one on the poop. There are wreathed ports on the upper deck, while on the quarterdeck the two aftermost have square decoration; the remainder are wreathed. The drawing is signed 'W.V.V.J.', and inscribed in the top and bottom right in pencil 'resolue' and in brown ink, '1676'. It was used for the younger van de Velde's painting now called 'The 'Resolution' in a gale' (NMM BHC3582), showing her as the flagship of Sir Thomas Allin as Commander-in-Chief in the Mediterrannean, in 1668.
