Coastal Scene (1892)

Thorenfeldt, Anton

Coastal Scene

Oil on Canvas: 34 x 54
Catalog# THOA-001

Taken from the Danish coast, this scene embodies the peace and beauty found at the edge of the sea. Algae-covered rocks, exposed and burned by the sun, are strewn along the water’s edge. Seagulls coast close the ground, scavenging for any scraps or bits to eat. The glassy surface of the shallow, still water reflects the few clouds hovering atop the horizon.

Thorenfeldt’s light and balanced palette create an inviting view of an empty shore.
