    You may enjoy this movie that I saw last night (in Dutch), about one of the greatest naval tacticians of all time, and a hero to the Dutch: Michiel de Ruyter. it’s a bit gruesome at times, and kind of melodramatic, but it is historically accurate, and beautifully filmed (stunning shots that look like Dutch baroque paintings, good CGI).

    Then you should visit the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. They have many paintings featuring him and his naval battles.

    One of the reasons the movie was so visually stunning is they consciously recreated many of those. There was even an in joke of a painter walking through the town right after a battle carrying one of them.
