Before the Battle of the Downs, 21 October 1639, showing Tromp's Flagship ''Amelia''
A fleet of Dutch ships is shown assembled off the Straits of Dover in choppy seas. In the central foreground is the 'Amelia', a man-of-war launched in 1632. The 'Amelia' was Maerten Tromp's flagship at the Battle of the Downs between the Dutch and the Spanish in 1639. The decoration of the taffrail is recorded by Nooms with characteristic attention to detail& the carved coat of arms on the stern of the ship belongs to Prince Frederick Hendrick of Orange-Nassau.
