The 'Huis te Zwieten' and other ships becalmed by Willem van de Velde the Elder zoom

The 'Huis te Zwieten' and other ships becalmed

In the left foreground, a port-bow view of the 'Huis te Zwieten' ('huis sweeten') with topsails loosed, buntlines of the courses hauled up and a flag at the main. There are other ships in the background.

The attribution to the Elder is doubtful. The light wash might be by the Younger, but there is less precision in the drawing of the ships than in the Younger's work. The inscription appears to be in the Elder's hand. The drawing is approximately dated by the subject, the 'Huis te Zwieten' being taken by the English on 9 [OS]/19 September 1665.
