Signed Lower Right, "V. Qvistorff"


Born in Bredegaarde, Denmark, Victor Qvistorff first studied with Hans Andersen Brendekilde. Qvistorff then became a successful business-man and painted only part-time until 1931 when he dedicated himself full-time to his art. Although the author of a notable series of nude studies of his long-time model, Sally Philipsen, Qvistorff is known primarily for his marine scenes- particularly the jewel-like views of Copenhagen harbor painted in a loose and painterly Post-Impressionist style. Qvistorff is well-listed in Weilbach's Dictionary and his works may be found in numerous public collections. We are pleased to offer this harmonious example of the artist's work in which he shows his intuitive gift for dramatic composition together with sinuous, painterly brush-work and a lyrical palette.
