An easy-going oil painting depicting a boat at a marina in Öland, Sweden. The artist, Emil Clahr (1905-1983) has used a broad brush and a light palette, which gives the piece an uplifting mood.
Clahr studied under the brilliant Isaac Grünewald and Otte Sköld, before moving to Paris where he trained at the Académie Julian. He’s known for his landscapes, which often depict Öland and the surrounding areas. Öland is a small island off the south-east coast of Sweden that has several marinas.
The painting is signed in the lower right.
