View of Tunis, Reinier Nooms, 1662 - 1668

oil on canvas, h 63cm × w 110cm Catalogue entry

In the second half of the seventeenth century, Tunis was a haven for pirates and privateers who lay in wait for Dutch merchant ships. To protect Dutch merchantmen, the navy patrolled the Mediterranean Sea. Nooms painted the ships and the topography of the shore with remarkable detail. He probably used drawings made on site as inspiration for this painting.
