A calm with a galliot and a ship at anchor

In the left foreground there is a port bow view of a galliot at anchor, with a wherry under her stern. In the centre foreground there is a wherry with two men in it. To the right there is a ship viewed from abaft the starboard beam; her fore and main topsails loosed and fore course in the brails.

This is an unsigned pencil drawing by the Younger, strengthened with pen and brown ink. It is possibly a faint drawing by the Elder with the strengthening in pen and ink by the Younger.
