Elisha Kirkall: Printmaker & Printseller

Johannes Chicheley Armigeri

Above is one of the Younger van de Velde's most celebrated paintings, the Windstoot. Although there is some slight and superficial resemblance, Kirkall's print is obviously not based on this painting. My guess is that the print is after Cornelius.
