Niels Walseth (1914-2001) is a well-listed Danish artist. He was brought up in a home filled with paintings as both his parents painted. He was educated at Teknisk Skole (the Technical School ), where the old painter Jacob Meyer inspired him to carry on the traditions from the great old painters at Charlottenborg. His motifs were everything from small fishing village in Zealand to motifs he found on his many journeys to Austria , Switzerland , Italy , Bayern and Norway , where he also exhibited. Price example: He sold "An afternoon excursion on the lake" for $4,626 at Sotheby s, London in March 1990 ( Lot 101, 19 1/4" by 27 1/6"). This was Soderberg/Walseth. Niels Walseth often used the pseudonym signature Carl Soderberg or others for many of his paintings. This is a wonderful portrait of a fisherman dressed for bad weather, probably deep ocean fishing. I think his expression and mood are wonderful. His hands are perfect. This is a wonderful painting that I have really enjoyed through the years I've had it.
