The 'Amelia' Engaging English Ships, June 1639
An interpretation of an action during the First Dutch War. It depicts a Dutch ship, the 'Amelia', engaged in action with British ships. The increasing conflict of trade interests between England and the Netherlands in the first half of the 17th century made armed conflict likely. The English claimed the right to search Dutch ships for French goods and in essence to control the English Channel, while the Dutch wanted the right to use the Channel.
