Painting By My Father-In-Law

My father-in-law was a sea-captain. He was sailing, among others, also the four-masted bark Herzogin Cecilie in the big grain races to Australia. Also he was fishing herring in the waters of Iceland.

This is a painting by him of the ship on which he was fishing herring in the 1930’s. On the back of the picture you can read his name and the year 1933.

I took some pictures of the painting today. Next summer there will be an event on herring fishing and the picture maybe used in some way there. I like the painting very much.
