Drawing on reverse by a later hand

The ship is viewed from before the port beam, at anchor in a calm with her fore course and topsail loosed and hauled out to a bowline, and her main topsail loosed on the cap. The mizzen is loosed and the spritsail is clewed up. On the reverse is a light tracing in pencil and wash by a later hand of an action between the English and Dutch.

One of seven drawings freely but accurately done. The group is approximately dated by the subjects and signatures, but by the style and papers they might be later. The van de Veldes clearly found a sale for their Dutch scenes even during the war with Holland, so that drawings cannot be assigned to the Dutch or English periods by the subject alone.
