An English ship in action with Barbary Corsairs, circa 1680

Willem Van de Velde the Younger

An action between an English two-decker and a Barbary two-decker, showing three small ships and four galleys. Although naval historians are unable to relate the action to a specific event, the painting significantly identifies the danger to English ships from such pirates during the 1660s and 70s and was initially thought to show the 'Kingfisher' in action in 1681.
Willem van de Velde, the Younger
