Art Wanted: Sell your 19th Century Ship Portrait

We are looking for works by:

Jaburg, Oltmann (German, 1830-1908) - Oilpaintings on canvas
Worked and lived in Vegesack and Bremen, Germany.
Ship Portraits of larger Sailing vessels and Steamers.
Offers for his works are starting at Euro 3.000 (Europe). Prices depend on subject, size, date, quality and condition. Please send us an e-mail to receive an exact offer for your painting (free of charge for persons considering to sell their painting).
Jaburg nearly exclusively worked for captains from the area (Bremen) . He used a wide palette of colours and managed to produce a realistic view of the sea, while the ship is depicted under full sail at the open sea with only a small coastline in the distance. Information about the artist and his oeuvre can also be found in our book "Ship Portrait Artists".
The FineArtEmporium is interested in the direct purchase of fine works by Oltmann Jaburg and can pay a good price. Please refer to our page "Contact" and send an e-mail to with the information requested there. You will receive an answer usually within 48-72 hours (up to a week in rare cases).
