The Shell Fishermen(497 views)
Description: A Danish realist of the 19th and early 20th centuries, Monster was known for his beautiful renditions of nature. Occasionally, as here, the artist placed figures interacting with the land or sea. These pictures rank among his best. Here we see not only the incredible rendering of the sea, but the shell fishermen at work in the fore, with ships on the horizon. A superb composition and wonderfully-sized work for any room. 32 x 24 inches framed.
