Return to Collection  :: Return to Three-masted Vessels  

Anton Melbye is the oldest of the three Melbye brothers (the others were Vilhelm and Fritz) and a well known marine artist. He preferred a realistic style, often also with romantic or dramatic scenes. Anton Melbye travelled extensively in the Northern Sea and Baltic Sea, to Marocco, Stockholm, Italy and to Konstantinopel. He exhibited from 1840 on at the Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, from 1847 on in the Salon of Paris, 1862 in London and in Hamburg, in Berlin at the Academy and in Brussels. There appeared already fakes of his paintings or works by other artists which signed also with the initials "A.M.".
