Art Gallery of Old Ship Portraits and Marine Paintings


Large Oilpainting of Troense Shipyard in the Svendborg-Sund, 1885, showing also a portrait of the sailing vessel "Anna", several men working on the right side at a hulk of a wooden sailing vessel, romantic early evening impression, on the left side another shipyard place, signed lower left with monogram E.G., Oil on canvas - 73 x 107 cm (28 3/4 x 42 inch) and with the frame 84 x 117 cm (33 x 46 inch), slight crackle, repair and inpaint in few places, cleaned and otherwise in good condition, gilted period frame - Private Collection Halifax, Canada

Note: 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 And although the style of this painting is a little naive - this is an historical document of the period of the wooden sailing vessels.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.
