The 'Mary Rose' action, 8-18 December 1669
A starboard broadside view of a ship being towed out of action, with only her foremast standing; the fore course is set, but only the shreds of a topsail are left. A galley is positioned under her stern.
This is a pen and brown ink drawing by the Younger with a grey wash. It has a pencil signature 'W.V.V.', which is thought to be false. The work is a sketch for a painting and is of very doubtful date; it might be as late as 1700.
Willem van de Velde, the Younger
