Below: from Robinson's van de Veldes, Vol II, page 1116:

There is a second version of this painting; photograph in Holland.

Joseph Sympson Jnr (c 1705?-1736) produced at least one green mezzotint after Monamy. Untitled, it depicts a burning ship. This print later appeared with van de Velde's name substituted for Monamy, and Houston's for Sympson.


P.Monamy pinxt Josephus Sympson Junr Fecit
Sold at Js Sympson's, at the Dove in Russell Court in Drury Lane.


"very low in his profession ..... a son of both his names ..... died in 1736 without having attained much excellence"

Bully for you, Horace, you knew how to dish it out.
