A detailed magnificent depiction of an English warship with a towed boat at sea is made in a precisely colored copper engraving. The sky, sails, numerous flags, cannons in open loopholes and the work of sailors in the rigging and on board create a rich maritime scenery. Title in German below the frame of the engraving. Trace of a vertical fold in the middle.
