Portrait of the 'Suffolk'

Willem van de Velde the Elder

Possibly a portrait of the 'Suffolk', viewed from the port beam. She was built in 1680 and rebuilt in 1699. At her launching, the Admiralty flag is forward and there is no staff amidships but there is a royal standard on a staff by the break of the poop. The ship has wreathed ports and only some parts of the lion figurehead can be seen. The 'Suffolk' was one of the 70-gun ships built as a result of the Defence Act of 1676. This particular ship bears a close resemblance to the one identified from a cut inscription as being probably the 'Suffolk', starboard broadside view (in the Boijmans Museum, Rotterdam). It is apparently not based on an offset, but is rapidly and accurately drawn at her launching.
