A kaag and a galjoot leaving the Vlie, 9 June 1645
The painting shows an event during the war between Sweden and Denmark, when Dutch merchant ships trading in the Baltic had to be escorted by men-of-war. On 9 June 1645, 300 merchant ships set sail under the command and escort of Witte de With, Vice-Admiral of Holland and Westfriesland. The shore of Vlieland, looking across to Terschelling, is shown on the left with a large crowd of people watching the departure.
