English ships, a ketch and a galliot in a light breeze, June 1673?
On the left is a starboard-quarter view of a ketch with mainsail in the brails and topsail set. In the centre is a fourth-rate in lee-broadside view, close-hauled on the starboard tack under all pain sail and main and main topmast staysails. On the right is a galliot with her square-sail, topsail and topgallantsail set. There are a number of other ships working to windward in the background.
Van de Velde the Elder had arrived in England in the autumn of 1672 and Schooneveld is the first battle he drew from the English side. He was given a ketch in which to accompany the fleet. This is one of three drawings probably belonging to the period between the two battles of Schooneveld, 28 May [OS]/ 7 June and 4 [OS]/14 June 1673.
Pen and brown ink probably by the Younger.
Willem van de Velde the Elder
