An interesting pen drawing bearing an old attribution to Esaias van de Velde, but there can be no doubt that it is the work of Jan Jansz van de Velde, a fact which has been confirmed by Dr.

van Gelder of Rotterdam, who has made a special study of the artist. One of 8 gifts to the Ashmolean, Fitzwilliam and Wallace Collection by F A Drey through the Art Fund between 1938 and 1943.
