Lot description
Vollschiff auf schwerer See. Nach 1950.
Oil on canvas
Signed lower left. 66 x 102 cm (25,9 x 40,1 in)

PROVENANCE: Hamburg private collection, acquired from previous owner in 1969.

The beholder's attention is drawn to the ship under full sails running on long waves, a lot of details on its deck can be seen because of the sails‘ heeling. Holst attains an accurate depiction of the gray blue sea under a cloudy sky in a characteristical manner. [UB]
