This busy scene depicts one of the most famous battles in the war between the English and Dutch in 1667. The panorama covers the region of Rochester and the entrance to the River Thames where the Dutch fleet destroyed and captured numerous British ships, including the Royal Charles. The city of Rochester is well defined with the river and bay filled with burning ships. The hills overlooking the battle scene show numerous on-lookers and an army rushing into battle.
Sharp impression and lovely color with a small spot in the sky at far right.
