This late 19th-century Danish School seascape depicts several boats sailing in turbulent waters under a majestic evening sky. Sails are billowing as the various vessels grapple with the conditions.

The work is unsigned but it’s by an accomplished hand. Note the details of the near-silhouetted town with its factory, windmill and steeple beyond. It’s plausible that it’s a Dutch view.

Stylistically, the work feels akin to those by Danish artist Vilhelm Bille (1864-1908) who was the son of Carl Ludwig Bille (1815-1898) - a master of the art.

Housed in a gilt frame.
