Willem van de Velde the Elder and his son Willem van de Velde the Younger were the most influential maritime artists of the 17th century.
This exhibition follows the journey of these émigré artists, and explores how they changed the course of British maritime art. Come face-to-face with colossal tapestries, dramatic seascapes and detailed drawings of naval battles.
Set sail for Greenwich, and experience the art of the Van de Veldes.
