About the Museum
In n. 291 is depicted an episode of the peace negotiations: under a camp tent three diplomats sit next to their respective generals.
The persons depicted in n. xxxx are each identified with a letter which was further explained in a caption beneath the painting. However, the caption is now lost. It is a sort of birds-eye view of the military camp where the meeting took place, with a tent housing the diplomats and their respective armies.
This form is a provisional working version and has not been copy-edited yet.
