Siege of Wien in 1683 by R. de Hooghe

For the publisher Nicolaas Visscher II (1649-1702), engraver Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708) prepared a series of 8 prints in which the complete history of the siege is being depicted. De Hooghe did not attend the siege himself but used drawings made by Jacobus Peeters from Antwerp.
