Late 18th century VOC uniforms

Not strictly ships, but a part of shipboard life.

Something I've been after for a while now are prints or paintings of late Dutch East India Company uniforms. There are many prints of captains and officers, and especially soldiers, from much earlier, especially the Dutch Golden Age. What I'm curious about is how much they changed, if they changed, and how they looked right before the end of the Company and the Batavian Republic.

Does anyone have any good resources to draw on for that kind of thing?

Thanks.
