A dramatic nautical scene, with Swedish provenance, depicting several vessels amid a rough and turbulent sea.
This energetic late 19th-century oil painting seems to put you right in the middle of the action as if you’re clinging on to the side of a sailboat as it’s buffeted by terrifying waves.
Towards the middle of the scene, several sailors take shelter by a stone-built lighthouse as their vessel lists heavily by the rocks.
