‘Under Full Sail’ Nautical Scene by Henk Dekker
Two Dutch fishing boats (‘Bomschuiten’) are returning home from a long day fishing in this marvelous painting by nautical painter Henk Dekker (1897 – 1974). White fluffy clouds contrast with the blue sky and the seafoam green of the waves. 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 favorite subject. Oil on canvas signed lower left. Framed in a modest vintage frame, dimensions are 38 inches tall by 45 1/2 inches wide. Canvas image is 32 inches by 39 1/2 inches.
