The Battle of Lowestoft, 3 June 1665, Showing HMS Royal Charles and the Eendracht, mid-17th century (oil on wood)

7337616 The Battle of Lowestoft, 3 June 1665, Showing HMS Royal Charles and the Eendracht, mid-17th century (oil on wood) by Minderhout, Hendrik van (1632-96); 101.6x152.4 cm; National Maritime Museum, London, UK; (add.info.: Creator: Hendrik van Minderhout
In this fleet engagement of the Second Dutch War, 1665-67, the Dutch were defeated, losing about 30 ships. This was the first fleet action of the Second Dutch War and the only one during the first year. Both sides had over a 100 sail and the action began at 3.30 a.m and continued until 7.00 p.m, by which time the Dutch were routed and in flight, leaving 17 ships sunk or captured.
The left foreground is occupied by the duelling flagships of the two commanders-in-chief. On the left, starboard-quarter view, is the Royal Charles, 82 guns, with the Duke of York on board. The Royal crest is visible carved on her stern, and a small boat is connected to the ship by a rope held by two men. Men are depicted working in the rigging. In very close action on her starboard side is the Eendracht, 76 guns. It blew up soon afterwards, killing her admiral, Lieutenant-Admiral Jan van Wassenaer Heer van Obdam, and all but five of her crew. The carved lion on her stern is depicted, and she flies the Dutch flag. This is a late Flemish school painting, presumably done shortly after the action, and is inaccurate since the English flagship has been given a Dutch stern, with a square tuck and gallery.); © National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London

EDITORS COMMENTS
Vividly capturing the chaos of war at sea, this oil on wood painting depicts The Battle of Lowestoft on June 3rd, 1665. As part of the Second Dutch War, a fleet engagement between English and Dutch forces resulted in a decisive victory for the British. At its center are two flagships: HMS 'Royal Charles', with Duke of York on board, and the 'Eendracht' flying the Dutch flag. The intense action is palpable as men work to maintain their ships amidst cannon fire and chaos. Note the distinctive Royal crest carved into HMS 'Royal Charles'' stern, while a small boat hangs precariously from her side. In contrast, the 'Eendracht' has suffered significant damage, its lion-shaped figurehead visible on what remains of its stern. This late Flemish school painting provides a unique glimpse into one of history's most pivotal naval battles.
