Between 1652 and 1674, three naval wars were fought with England – the so-called Anglo-Dutch Wars. This painting represents the Battle of Terheide on 10 August 1653. In the centre is the largest vessel in the Dutch fleet, the Brederode, commanded by Admiral Maerten Harpertsz Tromp. It is firing its cannons at an English ship. The Dutch Republic won the battle but lost its commander Tromp, who was fatally wounded.
