This view of sailing ships in a harbour, two with sail spread in light airs, is non-specific both as to place and era. It may, in fact, be the outer harbour of St Malo, but the artist has avoided easily recognized landmarks and it is not clear if it is intended as a historical scene, or one he witnessed. This could only have been of historic vessels or modern sail-training ships since the work probably dates from shortly before the Museum acquired it in 1978.
