• Jorgen was a Danish artist famous for his paintings of 19th Century ships.
 
• He worked extensively in Europe and Scandinavia
 
• There are examples of his work in Maritime Museums all over the world
 
• Having spent his early years in the merchant marine before turning to art full time - his works are noted for his superb accuracy in presenting the correct detail of his ships.
 
• It appears that nearly all of his subjects are based on actual subjects with many representing commissions by ship owners and captains.
 
• This particular work is in a ‘rare' superb condition with virtually no signs of age for 135yr old painting and must have spent nearly all its life under glass before light cleaning and reframing.
 
• A similar sized painting (sold at a Washington gallery for circa £9k in 2022) had been presented in 1970, by the King of Denmark; Frederick IX to the long serving retiring American Ambassador to Denmark.
