NoteWhile born in around 1633 in the town of ’s-Hertogenbosch, North Brabant, Striep registered as a citizen in Amsterdam in 1657. It is likely that he had trained in the city, probably under Willem Kalf, whose influence is strongly felt in Striep’s careful compositions, sharp observations and meticulous technique.
