A River Scene with Dutch Vessels Becalmed
Jan van de Cappelle

The row-barge in the foreground towards the left has a Dutch ensign, and most of the other vessels have Dutch flags.

This painting is comparable in style with Cappelle's 'A Shipping Scene with a Dutch Yacht firing a Salute', which is dated 1650.
