Wilhem Karl Ferdinand Arnesen (Danish, 1865-1948). Arnesen’s father was a skipper and a builder of model ships developing Arnesen’s interest for maritime at a very young age. Later when Arnesen was educated at the Academy of Arts he was given the highly esteemed honour to accompany the Danish Royal family on their many travels abroad. Arnesen was known for his detailed and powerful seascapes with large sail ships and often portrayed famous historical events. Arnesen traveled and worked all around the world and his paintings were in high demand. Arnesen is known to be the last of the great old national marine artists. The paintings of Arnesen have been exhibited at the world fair in Chicago , Museum of Arts in Lübeck , Germany and frequently at Charlottenborg.
Twice he won one of the Neuhausens Prizes ( 1893 for A major sailing ship is behind the pilot , 1899 for the school ship Georg Stage ). He received the Aarsmedaillen in 1907 (for the bright nights ) and became Knight of the Dannebrog in 1931. More on Wilhem Karl Ferdinand Arnesen
