Inscription in pen and brown ink lower right: Vandervelde
Provenance: The 12th Duke of Northumberland
The late Michael Robinson suggested that this spontaneous study of all types of Dutch shipping should be dated around 1665.
The Duchess is known to have bought two Van de Velde paintings at the 1765 sale of the collection of one of Van de Velde’s leading English followers, Samuel Scott ( circa 1702-1772).
