Elisabeth (Elżbieta) Jerichau Baumann. Emergency at sea

Lot 906/51. Elisabeth Jerichau Baumann (b. Warsaw 1819, d. Copenhagen 1881). “Et nødskud på havet”. Emergency at sea. Unsigned. Oil on canvas. 100×129 cm. Exhibited: ARoS Kunstmuseum, Aarhus, “Elisabeth Jerichau-Baumann – Mellem verdener”, 2021 no. 57, reproduced p. 126. Literature: Jerzy Miskowiak “Elisabeth Jerichau-Baumann. Nationalromantikkens enfant terrible”, Frydenlund 2018, reproduced p. 245. Provenance: Bruun Rasmussen Vejle auction 116, 2008 no. 411, reproduced p. 158. Jerichau Baumann painted other versions of this scene – with greater or lesser variations. Worth mentioning is “Strandfogeden i Harboøre i Jylland modtager i sit hjem meddelelse om en stranding”, (‘The wreck master in Harboøre in Jutland receives news in his home of a wreck), which measures 79×112 cm. Although not a direct repetition, the similarities between that work and the present one is evident, as the same interior and several of the figures are present in both works.  Estimate 50,000 – 70,000 DKK. Rasmussen. 03/01/22
