Holland having based its wealth on maritime trade, it is understandable that seascapes were a very popular genre in the golden age of Dutch painting.
Wilhem van de Welde is one of the great representatives of this era. He was born in December 1633 in Leiden and died in London on April 6, 1707. Most of his works are representations of the Dutch coast, with Dutch ships. His productions are characterized by great realism, a style common among marine painters of that time.
