The Dutch ship 'Oosterwijk' under sail near the shore, in two positions
A grisaille on panel showing the same ship in two positions. On the right is the 'Oosterwijk' standing out from the shore. She has a common Dutch flag at the main and a plain flag as an ensign. A ship's barge can be seen pulling away from her for the shore in the left foreground. On the shore there is a horse and cart, a rider on horseback and several people sitting or standing, surveying the scene. A weyschuit with two men in it is about to reach the shore. On the left is another view of the 'Ooosterwijk', this time she is shown running parallel with the shore. She flies the common Dutch ensign. In the right background, is a small ship which may be the 'Vollenhoven' as she has a cross with a star in each quarter and a fifth cross in the centre. There are several ships at anchor in centre background and it is possible that one of these may be the 'Tromp'.
