The Battle of the Texel (Kijkduin), 11/21 August 1673

The drawing illustrates the battle in the evening as Tromp, now in the 'Komeetster' runs across the bow of the 'Royal Prince', which is seen still in the wind and has not yet borne up as is shown in PAH3899. To windward of the 'Royal Prince' is the 'Royal Charles', her mainmast just gone by the board. To windward of her is Tromp's first ship the 'Gouden Leeuw' ('de hollantse Leeu'), while ahead of her in the foreground is De Haen ('hollandia'). On the left, the 'St Michael' close-hauled on the port tack is coming to the help of the 'Royal Prince'. On the extreme left, Sweer's ship the 'Olifant' is aback. The 'Woerden' and 'Akerboom' are noted in the left foreground ('woerden, akerboom') and the 'Gouda' is on the right ('gouda'). The 'Woerden' was not actually at the Texel. This ship that is probably represented is the 'Delft' or 'Amsterdam', the stern decoration of which might have been confused with that of the 'Woerden'. This drawing is unlikely to have been made during the battle. The pen and brown ink is probably by the Younger.
