Ludolf Bakhuizen: 'Dutch Men-of-war entering a Mediterranean Port'

Explore the paintings

The man-of-war on the left flies the Dutch colours and has the arms of Amsterdam on her stern. Another man-of-war in the right middle-distance carries the flag of the States-General and a plain red ensign. Other small vessels are visible and fly Dutch colours.

The view is probably imaginary, but the galleys show that a Mediterranean scene is intended.
