Allegory on the French Invasion of 1672

Active selection in cart:
In 1672 the Netherlands was invaded by the French. That disaster is allegorically rendered in the drawing at which the seated man looks: the Dutch lion is defeated, its weapons in pieces, the gate to its enclosure broken; above, the French rooster crows triumphantly. Symbolizing the other side is the standing man with an orange feather in his cap: he is a supporter ofWilliam III of Orange, who would avert the French threat. Date: 1672. Object ID: SK-A-4910.
