HMS 'Tiger' taking the 'Schakerloo' in the harbour of Cadiz, 23 February 1674

A panoramic view looking north across the Bay of Cadiz towards Rota. In the foreground to the right and centre the city's batteries are shown crowded with people. A windmill is prominently sited on the left. The painting commemorates an action which took place between the English and French and the Dutch after the end of the Third Dutch War, 1672-1674, but before the news of its cessation reached Cadiz. The two ships - the Dutch 'Schakerloo', 28 guns, and the British 'Tiger', 46 guns, under the command of Thomas Harman - anchored in the bay within hours of each other on 22 February. At about 09.00 on 23 February the 'Schakerloo', sailed out of neutral water followed by the 'Tiger'. In the fierce action, the 'Tiger's', superior fire-power meant that the Dutch ship eventually surrendered and de Witte was wounded. The English losses were very light, although Harman was slightly wounded and did not enjoy his triumph for long. When four Dutch men-of-war arrived in Cadiz soon after his return there, they forced him to release his prisoners or be sunk, even though he was in a neutral port.
