CATALOGUE NOTE
The anonymous Monogramist DW was formally identified as Den(n)is or Dionysius Waterloo (Nagler, 1860, nr. 1464) an invented painters name that got attached to seascapes carrying a monogram which read as ‘DW’. These works are comparable to Justus de Verwer and others in the Amsterdam School, but to date no Denis Waterloo has been identified (Kinkelder, 2006). The present pair of seascapes can be compared to Dutch ships in a breeze by the Monogamist DW, coll. National Maritime Museum, Greenwich London, inv./cat.nr BHC0737, both is dimension and subject.
