Eric Ekengren, Moonlight Landscape With Sailboats

An atmospheric mountainous nocturne with sailboats by Swedish artist, Eric Ekengren (1868-1955). It’s been painted with broad expressive marks and a palette that seems to draw you further towards it.

Ekengren began his career as an engineer but later devoted himself to his art. Some of his landscapes feature coastal views from England and France.

The painting is signed in the lower left and housed within a beautiful gilt frame that’s probably its original.
