The Van de Veldes were two of the most sought-after marine artists in 17th century Europe and are considered the founders of English marine painting, inspiring generations of artists including J.M.W. Turner.
The free exhibition in the Queen's House, The Van de Veldes: Greenwich, Art and the Sea, follows the journey of these émigré artists, and explores how they changed the course of British maritime art.
