Oil on canvas painting of incoming waves, painted in an impressionist manner, 15 1/2" by 23 1/2" (19 3/4" by 28" framed) signed at lower left and dated 1906 by listed Danish artist VIGGO LAURITZ HELSTED (1861-1926). This is a pleasing scene and quite typical of the artist's work. He was known for coastal and marine paintings as well as landscape in Denmark. This work has a vertical tear/scuff about 2" long at right center, and the entire disturbed area including scuff is about 4" in length; would not present any problem to a professional restorer. On the stretcher in old ink, possibly by the artist himself, is again the artist's name and some other information including a possible location pictured ("Bolge, Agger"). Nice complementary gold frame, with slight wear.
