Art Wanted: Sell your 19th Century Marine Painting

We are looking for works by:

Skari, Edvard (Norwegian, 1839-1903) - Oilpaintings on canvas
Lived and worked in Oslo, Norway
Marine Paintings with sailing vessels, Seascapes, Harbor and Coastal Scenes
Starting at NOK 6.000 or Euro 750 or BP 500 (Great Britain) or US$ 800 for smaller works. 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).
Edvard Skari was mainly self-taught, but received later an art training by the Danish Marine Artist C.F. Sorensen. His paintings are showing truely the weather and sea conditions in the Baltic or Northern Sea and his drawing of the depicted ships is quite accurate. Often we find in his works a coastline or landmark shown in the background.
The FineArtEmporium is interested in the direct purchase of fine works (oilpaintings) by Edward Skari 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).
