Sailing Ships on a Calm Sea

Ask anything

  • Rodney Franko asked

    What are the dimensions of the Drawing by Willem van de Velde II: Sailing Ships on a Calm Sea, H 154 (PK)? Thank you

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Rodney, you should have been able to find the dimensions of a work under the blue button 'show all details', but unfortunately they are missing in this case. First I thought that this was because the drawing is missing. In the Second World War it was sold to Dr. Hans Posse, a German art-historian who was commissioned by Hitler to obtain works for the Führermuseum in Linz and it has not been retrieved yet. But it appears that a mistake was made while adding the information in our collection registration system. The dimensions are known: 10,3 x 16,2 cm. Kind regards, Els
