The siege of Vienna by the Turks in 1683, Romeyn de Hooghe (1683)In 1683 the town of Vienna was besieged for two months by a great Turkish army. The siege was followed daily in the Dutch papers, the papers using correspondants who stayed near the battle fields. Newspaper articles were clarified by separate maps and news prints to provide readers with actual information about the battle sites. For the publisher Nicolaas Visscher II (1649-1702), engraver Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708) prepared a series of 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.
