Two Dutch vessels and a flagship under sail in a harbour
In this depiction of what might be the Haringvliet estuary in the Netherlands, a warship and two smaller vessels with flying flags and pennants appear to be sailing quite swiftly across dark blue choppy waves that stretch the full width of the fore- and middleground. The impression of rising winds and an impending storm is created by the all-embracing darkness of the scene, which is lit only by the flashing white of the warship's sails and the sunlit strip over the low horizon on the right. The sky's towering rain-heavy clouds, with their almost solid appearance building up towards the upper right-hand corner of the composition, may actually have caused the painting's attribution to Ludolph Bakhuizen's artistic circle.
