Dutch marine painter, son of Willem van de Velde the Elder and brother of Adriaen van de Velde. In 1673, he moved to London with his father who was commissioned by King Charles II to paint sea battles. The father drew and the son painted. Much of van der Velde's works consist of views of various sailing craft off the coast of Holland. The ships were portrayed with great accuracy and remain a valuable source of 17th century maritime precision to this day.
