Map of the Atlantic Ocean by Hessel Gerritsz, 1622
This gilded ceremonial nautical chart which was drawn in 1622 in the manner of a painting is the work of Hessel Gerritsz, who was the chief hydrographer of the Dutch East India Company from 1617 to 1632. This is the first depiction of the Pacific Ocean in its whole as it was then sailed through by Dutch ships. The author of this portolan included portraits of the Pacific discoverers, Balboa, Magellan and Le Maire. He thus paid tribute to the navigators while asserting Holland's claim to dominance over the whole of this ocean.
