Pictured in the foreground is the Dutch commander, Cornelius de Wit, being presented with the spoils of war. Above the battle floats an angel blowing a trumpet and two pair of putti. The original painting was by A. Schouman, and now hangs in the Dordrecht town hall, hometown of the victorious Dutch commander.
