Original Oil on canvas by Modern Swedish artist Arvid Claes William Johanson.
It won’t go unnoticed that I’ve slipped in a few Swedish painters this year. We have a few thousand mid-century Nordic paintings that live in our Cecil Court basement, largely kept at an affordable price level for our many interior designer clients who tend to arrive in a large van. There are a select number of more serious Swedish paintings that we tuck away for special events – the Dealer’s Eye show being just that. This atmospheric steamer gliding out of the sea mist is typical of Johansson’s work. Although a Swede by birth he became one of the most celebrated marine artists in France, eventually becoming the official painter to the French Navy.
