"This is a beautiful representation of vessels on their way - his pictures were designed and finished in so excellent a manner, that they are not only superior to the works of his father, but to all other artists in that style. The paintings of this master have in every respect, such a degree of perfec- tion, as is not to be discerned in the works of any other artist. Painted by William Vandervelde, the younger, who was born at Amsterdam, 1633, died 1707." [P. 19.]
