EDITORS COMMENTS
This hand-coloured engraving takes us back to Santiago, Cape Verde in the year 1589. The artist, Baptista Boazio, skillfully captures the essence of this West African island during a significant moment in history. The print depicts the aftermath of a war and sacking that occurred during Sir Francis Drake's West Indian voyage. As we explore the image, our eyes are drawn to various elements that tell a story of adventure and discovery. Sea monsters lurk beneath the waves, symbolizing both danger and mystery encountered by explorers at sea. Intriguingly, amidst this chaos lies hidden treasure waiting to be discovered. Turtles gracefully swim nearby as if guarding these precious riches from prying eyes. The composition also showcases an impressive fleet and army present on the island, emphasizing its strategic importance during this time period. A detailed map provides geographical context while coat of arms proudly represents Santiago's identity. As we delve into this print further, it becomes evident that there is more than meets the eye. It serves as a reminder of humanity's insatiable thirst for exploration and conquest throughout history. This remarkable piece from Bridgeman Art Collection allows us to glimpse into a specific moment in time - one filled with adventure, conflict, and untold stories waiting to be unraveled.
