Jacob Adriaensz. Bellevois (1621 – 1676)
The painting by another successful maritime painter, Jacob Adriaensz. Bellevois, shows two Dutch galleons with battle flags, smaller coastal vessels and a dinghy with officers on the river delta near Dordrecht. The painter skillfully joins the high, light sky, the moving sea and the ships rolling in the swell in an atmospherically dense sea piece.
