A Dutch yacht before the wind in a harbour
This painting shows a channel between two pieces of land, on which sails a variety of Dutch shipping. In the centre foreground is a States yacht. Behind to the left is an East Indiaman, part of a returning fleet and carrying a vice-admiral. The formation of the Dutch East India Company in 1602 was designed to provide legal powers to enforce a trading monopoly. The mid 7th century saw the company at the height of its powers and by the end of the century only the East Indian islands remained as its trading base.
