The rising tide at dawn
Cappelle was a wealthy Amsterdam dyer who became a marine and landscape painter by teaching himself to paint during his spare time. His paintings usually show calm rivers or seas, a limpid quality of light, and a delicate sense of tonality. This painting is believed to be a fragment of a larger work. Typically for this artist, it portrays a calm sea, with two coastal craft and a larger vessel behind at daybreak, bathed in a golden glow on mirror-smooth water.
