Shipping off a harbour forms the subject of this cabinet piece, which is one of a pair of early marine paintings on copper; see also BHC0733. The ship on the left flying the Dutch flag from the foremast is in full sail as it moves across the harbour. Figures can be seen climbing the rigging and others are visible on deck. A smaller vessel sails in its wake and another coastal craft is shown in the foreground.
