A Ship Saluting a Fort  1698 Peter Monamy

In the serene waters of a northern European coastal landscape and under the tall cumulus clouds of an evening sky both an English three-decker, which is seen just off stern, and a yacht are firing a salute. The white smoke is rolling undisturbed across the water.

To the right lies a fort with a prominent round tower flying an English flag. More vessels can be seen on the horizon. A couple of staffage figures populate the shallow water in the foreground. The scene is probably imaginary rather than topographical and historic.
