A two-masted pink

A free drawing of a pink from close on the port beam, with its sails furled. A man is depicted standing up in the stern-sheets with another pink beyond.

This is a pencil drawing by the Younger, signed in brown ink, ‘W.V.VJ’. According to Robinson it is less skilfully done than other work of the same date.

There is another drawing of circa 1681 on the same paper, but the signature is not of such a late period.
