A bright impressionistic portrait of a fisherman by Polish artist, Antoni Kierpal (1898-1960). The oils are layered on thickly creating texture throughout and the boats are simply a few quick brush-marks.
Kierpal enjoyed painting coastal scenes and some of his work is held in the National Museum of Szczecin, Poland.
