"STORCK, (or Stork, Abraham,) born at Amsterdam in 1650. He studied assiduously after nature, and sketched every vessel and scene, which he intended to introduce in any of his compositions, from the real objects; by which means his seas, rocks, havens, and ships have a strong character of truth. His colouring is pleasing, his touch spirited, and his pencil clean, neat, and delicate." No. 21.--THE ENTRANCE TO A SEA-PORT.--A Dutch Ship of War at anchor, another, just coming to anchor is saluting; boats full of men are going to, and coming from the latter; other vessels and boats in the distance; a pier-head with figures, a lighthouse, &c., in the foreground on the left; seaward, a point of land, across which a fresh breeze is just set in.
