Dutch Ships off Tripoli  1642 Reinier Nooms

A painting showing Dutch ships off the coast of Tripoli. Viewed from above, though not quite an aerial perspective, the port and shipping in the bay are all very carefully detailed. The port and buildings of the town are set against the backdrop of
the hills unfolding behind, with the harbour wall and fortifications reaching up to the shoreline. Boats and people are shown on the beaches and some houses also reach down on to the beach on the right and left. There is a stone jetty on the right. There are a number of ships in the bay prominently flying the Dutch flag, with small craft.
