A Dutch ship passing a fort
Abraham Storck was one of several Dutch marine painters who produced fantastical views of Mediterranean ports during the second half of the 17th century. Merchant shipping appears alongside architectural ruins, usually depicted in the crystal-clear colours of Italian art of the period. Such paintings anticipated the popular 18th century Italian capriccio. Storck, who was born in 1644, trained and worked with his father and became a member of the Guild of St Luke in Amsterdam. He probably never went to Italy himself, but he would have known Italian scenery and architectural prints and other artists
