The prints were engraved by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708) after drawings from the Antwerp artist Jacobus Peeters. This print forms the last in the series. It depicts the apotheosis of the battle: the conquerers enter the tent of the beaten Turkish commander, grand vizier Kara Mustafa. The background is formed by the slaves and the harem of the grand vizier.
