Review of Dutch yachts before Peter the Great
An interpretation of the visit to Amsterdam in 1697 by Tsar Peter the Great, 1672-1725, during his Great Embassy. When Peter arrived in Amsterdam on 25 August the city celebrated with fireworks, festivities and the maritime display, in the form of a mock battle, on 1 September, which is depicted here. Peter appeared in full regalia as the Tsar of Moscovy to watch the 41 ships that took part. He is shown standing in the yacht on the left, surveying the event, which attracted huge crowds.
