Description A seascape with large ships and a boat in the foreground; one of the men in the boat wears a hat characteristic of 17th century Dutch fashion. One of the ships has a Dutch flag, another one may have the flag with St. George's Cross (which could be Genoese), but the flags are barely visible so the identification is uncertain. A box on a boat is inscribed with the initials 'B. A.'. The condition of the painting makes it difficult to determine weather it may have been created by Barend Appelman (Dutch painter, 1640-1686), who painted in a similar style, but landscapes rather than seascapes.
