Catalogue Note

Storck, a native of the city of Amsterdam, practiced his marine painting in the wake of Ludolf Backhuizen who often included the silhouette of towns in the background of his own marine pictures. Thus, Storck's hometown itself appears here on the distant shore. A preliminary drawing for this compositon (signed and dated 1680, 90 x 142 cm.) is recorded in the collection of F.C. Butôt.1 An execution date for the present painting of soon after the 1680 drawing can be assumed.
