The capriccio is an imaginary representation where often very real monuments are grouped together. (For example the Rialto bridge which is found in the center of the canvas). Our table is a superb example with, to liven up a port, very lively with many characters and its maritime part. Jacobus Storck is also a marine painter.
Jacobus Storck (Amsterdam, 1641-1687)
Jacobus is the youngest son of a family of painters. He is the younger brother of Abraham Storck, their father is the painter Sturckensburch. Little is known about his life, however his works are well known to collectors across the planet. His paintings reach heights with records at more than 150,000 €, a large number being between 30,000 and 40,000 €, our table corresponds to this series of paintings around the theme of architectural whim, often Venetian, around a busy port ( to cite just one example: Sotheby's in 2007, "Venice, a Capriccio View from the Bacino with the Piazzetta" same dimensions: 83 cm by 60 cm, awarded with costs 35,000 €)
