Portrait of an English fourth-rate, about 42 guns

Willem van de Velde the Elder

A fourth-rate viewed from before the starboard beam. The lower-masts, bowsprits and spritsail topmast are shown. Like PAH3931, this may be one of the 42-gun fourth-rates, and the incomplete upper deck and the triple turreted quarter gallery make it probable that she is one of the early ships, 'Assurance' or 'Constant Warwick'. Although armed like the latter, the beakhead bulkhead is different, and this ship and not PAH3931 may be the 'Assurance'.

Accurately but rather untidily drawn and probably not based on an offset. It is very approximately dated by the style.
Willem van de Velde, the Elder
