Willem van de VELDE , 1633 - 1707

Boats pulling out to a Yacht in a Calm

Date: about 1665
Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 43 x 50.5 cm
Acquisition credit: Wynn Ellis Bequest, 1876

In the left middle distance is a States yacht ('statenjacht', a vessel used to transport members of government or visiting dignitaries) carrying the ensign of the States-General, the Dutch chamber of provincial delegates in The Hague. Beyond the States yacht are several men-of-war with Dutch colours; one of them, and the yacht, is firing a salute.

A group of dated pencil and wash drawings has been related to the picture, which is probably a scene on the Dutch coast near Den Helder.
