Fine Art Tuesday


One of the most evocative images in fine art, a fisherman's wife preparing her husband for burial.
Michael Ancher born in Denmark 1849 died 1927.

Famous for his paintings of the Danish fishing community of Skagen.

Moving a lifeboat in winter

A spinner and a blindman

Will he make it around the shoals?

  3. Many many years ago, I saw a painting at the Smithsonian. The subject was a fisherman and a young boy in a row boat in rough seas. I never learned any more about the painting but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Michael Ancher was the artist.
