Here, sat resting on a covered boat, a middle-aged fisherman squints against the glare of the sun. A pipe lit - arms folded, an unlikely model. Behind him, several vessels are a flash of white marks, their red sails cutting through a light blue sky. It’s Summer in Copenhagen and Bjulf is right at home.

This colourful portrait of a fisherman was possibly painted at Gammel Strand, which the artist knew well. His father was a fishmonger and probably frequented the market here. Bjulf seemed to have an obsession with this area and also painted the ‘Skovser Women’ who sold their wares in the square.

The painting is housed within a period frame and signed.
