Jorgen Dahl was famous for his paintings of 19th Century ships.
Having spent a few early years in the Merchant Marine he developed a fascination for ships and his paintings are known for their accurate detail.
He worked extensively across Scandinavia and Europe.
His work can be seen in collections and Maritime Museums all over the world.
This particular painting depicts the background in Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’ Elsinore Castle
This painting is in remarkable mint condition, with no signs of age cracking and looks as though it could have been painted 10 years ago not 130 years.
With a dedicated following of collectors, the market for Marine paintings has been strong for many decades and will work happily in any contemporary setting.
This particular painting is very similar to one that in the 1970’s had been presented to the retiring American ambassador by the then King of Denmark. This painting was sold by a dealer in Washington USA for $11,000.
