The Dutch Baroque painter Willem van de Velde the younger (1633-1707) is the most famous painter of art history, he was also called "The Lake painting Raphael".

First he moved with the marine painter Simon de Vlieger in the doctrine whose atmospheric seascapes for Willem were resistant to the model. His father Willem van de Velde the elder was marine artist, who was hired as a reporter to document naval battles as well as the ships of their own and those foreign fleets. His son used its templates like to paint this fictional compositions by special coloristic charm. In 1672, father and son settled over van de Velde to England at the Court of Charles II, where the two painters were given a series of exceptional privileges as an expression of appreciation of the King.

The works of Willem the Younger influence until today many artists who deal with the representation of seafaring. Admirable are particularly the paintings with calm seas - with enchanting acting Water reflection and breath-taking light.

His principal works are in the National Gallery in London, at the Bridgewater Gallery, private collections and in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.

The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.
