From w:Image:Spanish_Galleon.jpg :

I found the galleon picture from a website that didn't cite the image, although I've also seen it in two books (History of the World: The last five hundred years (1986) by Bonanza Press and Naval Warfare: 1492-1792, Cambridge University Press (1999)) The first one lists it as a "Sixteenth-century engraving of a Spanish galleon by Albrecht Dürer," while the second lists it as an "Anonymous sixteenth century engraving of a Spanish galleon." I'm kind of skeptical that Dürer did it, but I couldn't find any citations online for it. Sorry. Adam Faanes 15:12, 21 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Yes, it may not be from Dürer because he died 1528 and the ship shows a sprit topmast, which was addet in the early 17the century (1620). -- 16:22, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
It's almost certainly a mid-17th century ship, not a 16th-century one. They looked entirely different. Fut.Perf. ☼ 18:19, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
