The departure of an East Indiaman
In the centre of the painting a large East Indiaman, in starboard-broadside view, is shown leaving a port. She flies the flags of the Dutch East India Company on her stern and foremast which also carries its pennant. Detailed attention has been paid to the rigging and figures can be seen on the deck as she fires a salute. On the left two figures on a quay point towards the ship in a gesture of farewell. This may also imply that they have a financial interest in the ship's progress.
