Presented for sale is an incredible oil painting on canvas by American expatriate artist Augustus Koopman (1869 - 1914.) The painting depicts a Dutch maritime scene in which a young woman strolls down the street trying to ignore the stares and attention of the sailor behind her, a mortified look of embarrassment on her pretty face. She demurely holds her knitting in her hand and keeps her eyes focused straight ahead hoping to hasten her escape. Is it young unrequited love or unwanted attention, only the painter knew for sure, but what an enticing story. The bright colors, rendered in bold strokes, were a trademark of this talented artist.

Augustus Koopman was born in Charlotte, NC, but spent most of his short adult life living the Bohemian existence in France. There he painted marine and figurative subjects in Etaples along the coast of Normandy and Belgium. His work has become significantly collectible, and some of his pieces can be found in respected museum and increasingly private collections.

The painting is in excellent condition, set into a molded frame, signed in the lower right hand corner.
