Full-length portrait of Kenau Hasselaer standing in front of the city walls of Haarlem. Other women in the background.

The portrait was included as plate in ‘Batavise Romeyn; ofte alle de voornaemste heldendaden, ridderlijke feyten en listige oorlogs-vonden, in veld en zeeslagen, overwinninge van steden en schepen, en in andere gelegentheden, by de Hollanders en Zeeuwen verricht, zedert den iare 1492 tot 1661’, a work by Petrus de Lange.
