Peter the Great inspecting a ship at Amsterdam
This scene is probably a variation on Abraham Storck's paintings of the visit to Amsterdam in 1697 by Tsar Peter the Great, 1672-1725, during the 'Great Embassy', Peter's grand diplomatic tour of Europe, 1697-98 (see BHC0926). When Peter arrived in Amsterdam on 25 August the city celebrated with fireworks, festivities and a maritime display in the form of a mock battle, which he attended on 1 September. A contemporary account states that he was so delighted with the whole performance that at his request it was repeated several weeks later. Peter appeared in full regalia as the Tsar of Muscovy to watch the 41 ships that took part.
