Matham see Ingalls, Whaling Prints 359: "It is particularly important as a prototype for both whale print iconography and seventeenth-century Dutch landscapes. This particular depiction of a sperm whale was to be copied for two hundred years in European stranded whale and natural history prints. Similarly, the device of depicting the receding shoreline appears throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in Dutch prints and paintings."
