EDITORS COMMENTS
This engraving, titled "Attack on Santiago on 27th November 1585" depicts a pivotal moment in history when Sir Francis Drake led an audacious assault on the Portuguese-held city of Santiago in the Cape Verde archipelago. The print, created by Flemish artist Theodore de Bry in the late 16th century, showcases the intensity and drama of this daring military expedition. Intricately detailed ships fill the harbor as they engage in a fierce battle against their Portuguese adversaries. The scene is alive with action, capturing the chaos and bravery of both sides involved. This historical event marked an important milestone for England's naval power and its ambitions to establish colonies across the Atlantic. The engraving offers a glimpse into the maritime tactics employed during this era of exploration and colonization. It also highlights Queen Elizabeth I's strategic support for Drake's voyages, which aimed to challenge Spanish dominance in America while securing valuable resources for England. The coastal landscape serves as a backdrop to this epic clash between nations, emphasizing not only the significance of territorial control but also showcasing how warfare shaped colonial ambitions during this time period. Overall, this remarkable artwork provides us with a window into one of Sir Francis Drake's most daring exploits and reminds us of the complex dynamics that unfolded during Europe's race for global supremacy in the 16th century.
