HEINRICH FRIEDRICH TANK

marine and genre painter , 1808 in Hamburg – 15.6.1871 in Munich

„Fishermen with their boats on the bold shore of Southern Italy”

oil on canvas, signed down right and dated "1851"

24,5 x 33, 5 cm

This marine painting on the bold shore of South Italy exemplifies the rank of Heinrich Tank as an important marine painter.

After he started at the Acadamy of Copenhagen, he continued his studies in Munich, where he acquired important impulses to create his independent painting style. He combined early tendencies of german outdoor painting, that put him on the side of Christian Morgenstern, with the concepts of german romanticism.
