The Battle of the Dogger Bank, 5 August 1781
The British artist Thomas Luny (1758-1837) is best known for his marine paintings, which, though often sombre, show great skill in technique and execution. The action referred to in this painting is a confrontation between a British convoy homeward bound from the Baltic and a Dutch convoy. The British commander Hyde Parker ordered the British merchantmen to continue their voyage home, whilst he ran down on the Dutch with his battleships. In the centre of the picture is the Dutch flagship, the 'Admiral de Ruijter', surrounded by British and Dutch ships.
