The Thirty Years War wreaked havoc across Northern Europe in the early to mid-1600s. In the drive to seize power, armies battled on land and at sea.

Through the paintings of Battle Cry, encounter this war's great maritime clashes and witness the beginnings of a structured navy. From the winged Polish cavalryman in Stefano Della Bella's etching to the portly moustachioed soldier in An Old, Fat Hungarian Cavalier, study the faces of warriors and the uniforms of mounted soldiers.

Peer into intricately drawn city scenes where mêlée becomes pattern, and stare down the cadaverous face of Death as he carries life away.
