Danish 19th Century Watercolor Portrait of the Brig "Emerald" by Jacob Petersen

About

Danish original 19th century watercolor and ink portrait of the two masted brig "Emerald" with Kronborg (Elsinore) castle in the background. Signed lower right with initials J(acob) P(etersen), titled by artist lower left " Brig Emerald of Montrose Captain Robert Wood", circa 1841-1860. The brig "Emerald" was built in 1841 for D. Macki. She weighed in at 200 tons and was iron bolted. She plied the Baltic Sea out of her home port of Montrose where she was built. She was deregistered in 1860. Jacob Petersen (1774-1855) was born in Flensburg Denmark and was a Captain in the Danish navy. He began drawing and painting at an early age and by the 1830s he began painting in earnest; he became a well known and well regarded pier head painter. His work maintains a fresh and almost naive character, but he is rigorous in his accurate depiction of the ships that he painted. His works are held in museums and collections around the world including the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass., the Danish Maritime Museum and the Sunderland Museum in England. This portrait exemplifies his style and has maintained a wonderful color and depth. There is a small amount of foxing, but quite minor. Reference: Pierhead Painters by Roger Finch, publ 1983.
