The 'Fairfax', 'Assurance', 'Tiger' and 'Elizabeth'
British men-of-war of the late 17th century are shown at sea. Three ships are clearly visible, although the key provided on the left-hand side indicates four. It is probably surviving a part of a much larger picture. Research indicates that according to the number of guns, the ship in the foreground is probably the 'Fairfax' with the 'Elizabeth' close by. This is not consistent with Sailmaker's key, and so the circumstances of the painting remain a mystery.
