Siege of Vienna 1683

Another engraving by Romeyn de Hooghe of the famous late 17th century siege of sieges. According to the Memory of the Netherlands de Hooghe was not present at the siege but worked from drawings by Jacobus Peeters from Antwerp. Apparently the Dutch avidly followed the progress of the siege through newsheets and so forth.
