The 'St Michael' in a fresh breeze, 1673
The 'St Michael' is viewed from close under the lee bow in a fresh breeze, close-hauled on the starboard tack under fore and main topsails lowered half-mast. There is a flag at the mizzen.
This drawing, is in bold pencil, is not attributed to the Younger without some hesitation as the Elder did such work in his later years. But it is unlikely that he would have drawn so freely yet accurately. The inscription is very faint, and it cannot be said with certainty whether it is in the hand of the Elder or the Younger.
Willem van de Velde the Younger?
