Art Wanted: Sell your 19th Century Ship Portrait

We are looking for works by:

Locher, Jens Thielsen (Danish, 1825-1869) - Oilpaintings on canvas
Lived and worked in Denmark
Ship Portraits of Sailing Vessels and a few Seascapes.
His oils are starting at Euro 1,500 (Continental Europe). Prices depend on subject, size, date, quality and condition. Please send us an e-mail to receive an exact offer for your work by this artist (free of charge for persons considering to sell their painting).
J. T. Locher produced ship portraits of remarkable quality (with only few exceptions), the handling of the sea is quite realistic and we often find a large palette of colours used in the sky. The sailing vessels are depicted in every detail often with Kronborg Castle in the distance. He had a son Carl Locher, who produced in his early years also some ship portraits. Information about the artist and his oeuvre can also be found in our book "Ship Portrait Artists".
