From en:Image:Siege of Belgrade, 1584 topkapi.jpg:

Painting finished in 1584 by the famous Turkish miniaturist Mohammed bey. Turkish attack, led by Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror (in the centre of the painting, with white turban); the bombing of the city by cannons; European army on the walls, calmly awaiting invasion forces; and, at the end - organized withdrawal of the Turkish army (lower right corner). In the river Sava (and on the ground) are depicted numerous corpses; in the river (middle of the right part) a bow of a Hungarian army boat can be seen. During the siege, all necessities and food were transported into the city by boat, which was the main reason for the failure of the siege.
