A dramatic depiction of a fiery cavalry battle by a provincial 18th-century Flemish artist. In the foreground, a white horse is falling amid a chaotic flurry of swords and activity. Its rider lays prone on the ground as several of his comrades fight for their lives.

In the distance, an old windmill stands quietly and still - in sharp contrast to the action before it.

The painting is housed within a gilded composition swept frame with extensive floral decoration.
