Description: Willem van de Velde, the Younger (1633–1707) was one of the best-known and most influential Dutch marine painters. He worked in Amsterdam in his father's studio before they both settled in England, first in Greenwich (where their studio from 1674 was in the Queen's House), then in 1692 in Westminster. This sketch of an early dredger was completed in 1672.
