Willem van de Velde, the Younger : “Ships in a Gale” (1660)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Ships in a Gale evokes the violent waves and ominous skies that have compelled marine artists for centuries, but what makes it truly exceptional are the numerous vignettes unfolding within. Frantic sailors are shown hauling in sails, hanging from the rigging, washing up on jagged rocks and clinging to stray oars. Van de Velde might have titled the painting Sailors in a Gale, for it is as much about the experience of individual mariners as the vessels they struggle to man.
