As a teenager, Carl Kylberg worked on the school ship Abraham Rydberg inspired by his older brother Fredrik who was a sailor and already had been working at the same ship. The experiences he had on board during this short period of time was an inspiration for his work during the rest of his life. One of Kylberg’s most known works are the painting depicting the Flying Dutchman. He also painted several other canvases with mysterious ships in shimmering light and shadows.
The auction's work "Natten viker” is a fine example of Kylberg’s painting at its very best. The vague background with the horizontal lines meets the pure, distinct colors that vibrate with strong, inherent power and leaves the observer with a sense of deepest contemplation.
