Dutch Ships in a Calm Sea, Willem van de Velde (II), c. 1665

Dutch Ships in a Calm Sea, Willem van de Velde (II), c. 1665

oil on canvas, h 86.8cm × w 120cm More details

A few warships in a calm sea: their sails are being hoisted, their anchors raised. The small squadron is getting ready to depart. A sloop with dignitaries rows past the ships, to the sounding of trumpets and firing of salutes. Already in 1778, this painting was described in a sales catalogue as being exceptional: ‘one of the best gems by this outstanding marine painter.’
