Ships and flutes sailing out from a fjord, probably Flekker, Norway by Willem van de Velde the Elder zoom

Ships and flutes sailing out from a fjord, probably Flekker, Norway

A port-bow view of about fifteen ships, most of them flutes (fluyts), running out from a narrow fjord under topsails, with rocks on either side. The leading vesel is a flute but closely followed by a ship with a flag at the main, which may be the commodore. The artist's pencil incription, top left, reads 'no 2 vleckeren en de schepen uijt komen' (No. 2 Vlecher and the ships coming out). This is probably Flekker, 35 miles east of the Naze on the southern coast of Norway. The particular incident is unidentified. It may be a drawing illustrating one of 'severall Campagnes of ye old Princes of Orange' (PRO, Kew; State Papers 29, 400). However, van de Velde may have seen such sights often on voyages to the Norwegian coast. The drawing is signed and dated ' WVV1641', in pencil, lower left and bears the ink inscription 'by Vanderveldt' at the top in an 18th century hand.
