Maastricht 1632

This panorama concentrates on the foreground figures and we can see Frederick Henry Prince of Orange (1584-1647) and his staff on the left of the picture wearing armour and orange sashes. In the centre of the picture are officers with red sashes around their waist who may well be British officers. The painting is in the manner of Pieter Wouwerman and hangs in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
