Freighters on the Open Ocean by Henk Dekker
Two tramp freighters passing each other on the open ocean, far away from shore. The low sun casts sparkling reflections off the sea-green water. Thick pillow clouds are slowly clearing off to a brilliant blue sky. Dekker was known for painting nautical scenes such as this and with his studio in The Hague, it was easy for him to make short trips to small Dutch fishing villages along the coast to study his favourite subject. Oil on canvas signed lower right. Framed in a modest vintage frame, canvas image is 23 1/8 inches by 39 inches.
