A pen-and-wash drawing by Nicolaas Baur with a similar composition is part of the collection of the Prentenkabinet Rijksuniversiteit of Leiden (inv. no. 2525). Just as the current lot, it depicts a harbour view of presumably Harderwijk, the Netherlands. The drawing is described and illustrated in Gemeentemuseum Het Hannemahuis’s exhibition catalogue, Woelend waterleven en werk van de zeeschilder Nicolaas Baur (1767-1820), (Van den Berg-Dijkstra,1993).
