Kirsten Gallery's 10th Annual Northwest Marine Exhibition , Jul y IS-September 15, drew its usual stellar gathering of artists from all over, and included this spirited rendition by Richard C. Moore of a steamer bucking heavy seas.
For a close and fascinating look at the ships of Restoration England-the ships the Van de Veldes painted-see Frank Fox's magnificent vol ume, Great Ships: The Battle Fleet ofKing Charles II (Co nway Maritime Press, 2 Nelson Road , London SEIO 9JB, England , 1980, 208pp, illus, 11 1/2 x 9 3A, £20 or $51 postpaid). This glorious work examines the ships in all their variety, in contemporary models as well as paintings, and goes into their histories sometimes in greater detail and with more accurate knowledge than was available, apparently, to Sam Pepys himself!
