The Battle of The Sound, 29 October - 8 November 1658

When Sweden attacked Denmark and occupied both sides of the Sound it brought Dutch Baltic trade to a standstill. The Dutch sent a fleet to the Baltic under Lieutenant-Admiral Jan van Wassenaer to protect their trade routes from the Swedes, who were besieging Copenhagen. The Dutch victory at the intensely fought battle of the Sound forced the Swedish fleet to withdraw from Copenhagen and the siege of the city by land was abandoned. The painting shows a general view of the end of the battle and, since the artist was present it can be regarded as an eyewitness interpretation.
