A calm sea
Hendrik Dubbels has depicted two ships on the right under a grey cloudy sky. In the distance there is a warship and several sailing boats. The calm water reflects the ships. In the foreground, fishermen on the beach are gathering mussels. This painting was attributed to Jan van de Capelle, whose name was added by a later hand to the painting, Simon de Vlieger and Hendrik Dubbels. De Vlieger was the teacher of both Dubbels and Van de Capelle, and he influenced the work of both.
