Cologne, GermanyLive Auction
Description: Cornelis Stooter, active in 1620 in Leiden and in 1648 the deacon of the guild there, was probably a pupil of Jan Porcellis´. The depiction of the figures and the stormy sea in the background is characteristic for his seascapes. The stormy sea contrasts with the calm at the shore. The church on the left symbolises the inner peace to be found through Christianity. (For a similar composition in the Willem Russell Collection, Amsterdam, cf. L. Bol: Die holländische Marinemalerei des 17. Jahrhunderts. Braunschweig 1973, p. 112).
