Andries van Aertvelt (or Eertvelt) was a pupil of Hendrik Cornelisz Vroom (1566-1640) and, in the early part of his career, painted seascapes in the manner of his master. He became a member of the Guild of Saint Luke in Antwerp in 1609. Van Aertvelt's earlier marines were painted in darkish tones, often with white, spidery highlights on the rigging against a dark sea. Around 1627 he went to Genoa, where he worked for Cornelis de Wael. He returned to Antwerp around 1630 and sat for Anthony van Dyck, who painted his portrait in 1632 (collection Schaezlerpalais, Augsburg). His later works, after his return form Italy, generally became much calmer in feel and softer of tone, focusing on Southern views. As such, the present picture can be dated to ca. 1620 on stylistic grounds.
