Adam Willaerts
Ships off a Rocky Coast

1621 Nicht zu sehen

Three-masters with billowing sails and fluttering flags lie just off a rocky coast. Along the shoreline, people are busily bringing the fish ashore. The fish are already being sold in the foreground.

Adam Willaerts made a great many fantasy landscapes, to which he often added realistic elements. In the background of this painting, you can see the palace of Rudolf II in Prague.
