Prince Diepo Negoro was the most important Javanese leader in the Java War (1825–1830). Although the Dutch promised him safe conduct, he was arrested during the peace negotiations. Pieneman highlighted this moment from the Dutch perspective. He did not show the betrayal, but rather Diepo Negoro submitting to Dutch authority and taking leave of his defeated followers. The self-assured Dutch commanders stand on the steps. The Dutch flag flutters above.
