Abstract :
Considers two similar views of Liverpool, one in oil on canvas, the other oil on wood, both hitherto dated to 1680 (Liverpool, National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside). Existing documentary and physical evidence suggests that the canvas painting is a near-contemporary depiction of Liverpool, ca.1680, and that the topography and shipping are accurate. The panel painting, however, was almost certainly produced more than a century later, perhaps on the basis of the 1766 engraving by John Eyes after the oil on canvas. ;
