Since 1763 the name 'Russborough' has been synonymous with collecting and dealing in fine art. In the closing decades of the last century the historic town of Port Hope has become home to Lord Russborough's Annex, which specialises in an individual mix of antique maps, paintings and prints.

Van Doort watercolour

S. A.
First quarter of Nineteenth Cent.

Dutch Harbour Scene

Watercolours on paper. Signed (Bottom Right) Double mounted Glazed. Giltwood frame.
10 1/4 x 14 1/4”   (26 x 36.3 cm.) Frame 19 x 22 1/2”

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.
