From "A Family Collects: Paintings and Sculpture from the Codman House," Concord Museum, 1993-1994: Works by seventeenth-century Dutch artists were very popular when Richard Codman was acquiring paintings. The artist who painted this distinctive monochromatic view of a ferry landing has not been identified. Later generations of the Codman family always thought it was the work of William Van de Velde, who was a court painter to Charles II of England.
