A fishing boat off a rocky coast in a storm with a wreck
A favourite theme of Dutch marine paintings was ships wrecked on rocky shores. This fascination may be attributable to the flat, undramatic nature of most of their coastline but it also carried symbolic significance. This interpretation of ships heading for destruction on the rocks shows a continuous narrative, with the boat on the far left in a heavy sea, while the ship in the middle distance has hit rocks and is foundering. In the foreground to the right several men cling to the top of the masts of their ship, which has already sunk.
