Siege image

I am not sure what this image depicts. Presumably an event in the Polish-Swedish war but I don't know. Anyone got any ideas?

I took that from a Polish auction site. Google translates the text with something about negotiations between a Plish ambassador and Carl Gustav. The city is called Colo, so could be present day Kolo.

No siege, no battle. The Swedish King, Carl X Gustav, receiving Przemski, the emissary of the Polish King, Jan Casimir, at the Swedish camp near the town of Kolo 16 August 1655, following the initial stages of the Swedish invasion of Poland.
