Footnotes

  • In their interpretation of sky and water, Storck's coastal scenes were much influenced by Ludolf Bakhuizen, while he also shows the influence of other Amsterdam marine artists, such as Willem van de Velde the Younger and Jan Abrahamsz. Beerstraten. His accuracy in the rendering of ships' rigging and other such technicalities was inspired by the van de Veldes and Storck's particular attention to technical detail is admired today by ship historians. The careful characterisation of his figures and his interest in details of costume are also evident: indeed, this skill, which was lacking in the majority of his contemporary marine painters, was sufficiently recognised for Storck to have painted the staffage in other landscapists' works.
