    View 1: La ville de BATAVIE
    Creation Date: 1700-1799
    Catalog ID: 1895.1.40
    Two landscape views taken from Batavia, a Dutch colony in the East Indies. Both views are panoramic and resemble the Dutch landscape view tradition. The two views are placed together, the top view depicting a small village and port in Batavia. A heavy line of palm trees surround several large buildings and churches which stand before a small range of mountains. An expanse of water streches out from the village. The water is filled with several larger sailing vessels, a raft, and several canoes. Native inhabitants appear to be navigating the smaller vessels in contrast to the colonists which seem to be operating the larger sailing vessels in the port. The lower image depicts the arsenal at Batavia with a church in the background. Palms line the left side of the view and several large sailing vessels extend out toward the foreground of the image.
