Maritime Painting, Dutch Merchantman & American Trading Vessel
Jupiter * Amsterdam
Getekend door [drawn by, Dutch] J. Jordan


Maritime Painting, Dutch Merchantman & American Trading Vessel
Jupiter * Amsterdam
Getekend door [drawn by, Dutch] J. Jordan, entire view

Not a typical Dutch name; artist may have changed his name from Jordaan for marketing reasons.

The Amsterdam fly’s her national flag; mast flags represent the shipping/mercantile
company…the ship’s name and homeport of Amsterdam are painted in gold gilt with
black silhouette and proudly positioned. The Dutch ship displays a false line of painted
gun ports, [two live with cannon] a small American trading vessel is off the Jupiter’s port
side [flying American flag]. A jolly boat tender is tied to the Amsterdam, one sailor is
climbing abord while four remain afloat. A sailor is climbing rigging, another is waving to
the captain of a small sailing vessel of her stern; men are seen on the bow and
bowsprit. Within the composition are multiple national ships and pilots; also, a second
jolly boat tender powered by four sailors. Fine attention to rigging detail suggesting that
perhaps the artist swallowed the anchor, creating port and arbor pictures to be sold to
visiting sailors. The work is archivally mounted within a period and appropriate frame;
minor imperfections including scattered foxing and minor tears at borders, now repaired.

(Frame: 22.75" x 29.25"; view: 19" x 25.25")
