    Jacobus Storck may have worked in the studio of his younger brother, Abraham Storck. Only a few paintings have been attributed to him with certainty, including The Castle on a River (London, Wallace collection) and the View of Overtoom (Enschede, Rijksmuseum Twenthe). The present panel maintains the bright, sparkling colors of Storck's quietly charming output, and was first connected to the artist's work when it appeared at auction in 1990.

    Provenance

    Anonymous sale; Christie's, London, 14 December 1990, lot 285, where acquired by the present owner.
