A typical early nineteenth century (ca. 1805) Dutch harbour scene with a fully square - rigged sailing ship, with topgallants and top sails set as she enters, or prepares to leave, a substantial Dutch harbour town. Smaller sailing vessels ply the harbour mouth. In the foreground two men idly watch from a pier, as a skiff is rowed across the shallow water at low tide carrying two passengers and supplies. There is some evidence of professional repair to this well painted scene.
