The Departure of a Dignitary from Middelburg by Adriaen Pietersz van de Venne (c. 1589-1662) oil on panel, 1615. The warship De Zeehondt is being towed to sea from the harbour of Middelburg by four muscular draught horses. The identity of the departing person who is drawing so much attention from a multitude of low and high-ranking people is unknown. However, it must have been someone of standing, for even Stadtholder Maurice's yacht is present; it fires a salute.
