The engraving was made by Mark Quirin. The sheet was published in Vienna and forms a part of a large collection of old maps and engravings. It is one of the numerous representations of the Austrian siege and capture of Belgrade in 1789, and shows the Austrian units penetrating into the town supported by gunfire. In the foreground, the victory is celebrated in the presence of the commander-in-chief Marshal Laudon in the military camp on Dedinje. The engraving depicts the deployment of the troops, their uniforms, life in the camp and the great number of captured Turks.
