A Battle

This is probably not intended to represent a specific battle but belongs to a category of paintings based on the French campaigns in the Netherlands in the 1670s. It has been attributed to van Huchtenburgh on the basis of a stylistic comparison with signed works, for example the 'Cavalry Attack' (Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum).
