    H Crane, Barken Lingard (detail)

    The exhibition consists of some fifty marine paintings from Åland and the Swedish island of Tjörn. Curator for this exhibition is Kjell Ekström, head of the Åland Museum at Mariehamn. The Nordic Watercolour Museum is responsible for the exhibition’s production. The pictures from Åland are loaned from the Åland Maritime Museum while the Tjörn images have been lent by private collectors. The main emphasis is on watercolour, though many of the paintings show a wide range of techniques.
