The cannon shot
Willem van de Velde II (1680)
The cannon shot. A Dutch warship fires a cannon shot. The ship lies still on the smooth water: the sails hang completely slack. Two sloops are bobbing on either side, in the distance another Dutch ship can be seen, with lowered sails. The calm of the wind contrasts with. The gust of wind on the right, on which an English warship, battered by the storm, drifts rudderlessly.
