Splendid view of the siege of Nyborg in November 1659. The scene depicts a battle in the war between Denmark and Sweden, in which the Dutch were allies of the Danes. The bird's-eye view shows the walled city with an army marching to her defense and the harbor filled with ships engaged in battle. Title in ribbon style cartouche.
