Malta. [View of the castle, fortifications and harbour of Valetta]. [Malta(?), ca. 1700?]. 14 x 44 cm. Ink and colour wash drawing, signed in the lower right corner: "Rademaker". Mounted in a rice-paper window kept under passe-partout.
Beautiful and detailed watercolour drawing, drawn in brown ink with grey and brown washes. The fortifications are rendered in a very careful and detailed way. The view is probably drawn from the peninsula Floriana, part of the city of Valetta, with the fortification Manoel at left and the fortification Tigné in the centre, both with the flags of the Order of the Knights of St. John flying on the towers and ships in full sail leaving the harbour for the open sea. Above the border at the centre is written "Malta".Cut down to the border (except for a tab left at the top for the title), but in fine condition, with only a couple small spots in the sky.
