Shipyards were in general only rarely painted. And although the
style of this painting is a little naive - this is an historical
document of the period of the wooden sailing vessels. With the
calm and romantic atmosphere it expresses the spirit of the golden
days of sails which were already heading to an end in the 1880s.
