Cruz Bay Painting
It’s by the Danish artist, Andreas Riis Carstensen.
Carstensen specialized in maritime scenes using bright tropical colors which reflected the natural beauty of his environment.
This rare find is signed by Carstensen himself in the bottom right corner.
In 1904, he exhibited over fifty beautiful oil paintings during the West Indian Exhibition held in Copenhagen, many of which were created during his stay in the Danish West Indies.
Sadly, Carstensen died a short time later, in 1906.
The estimated auction price, depending on bids received, will be around 3,000 Danish Kroner or around US $445.00.
