“Denmark” is a watercolour painting by Herbert Lewins capturing the serene beauty of a Danish harbour, featuring four charming boats that resemble traditional fisherman's vessels. The artist's skilful use of soft hues, highlighted by touches of red, and fine black outlines creates an atmosphere that embodies the timeless charm of Scandinavian port cities.

The painter's masterful use of watercolours infuses life into the boats, creating shadows and reflections in the water that convey a sense of apparent stillness and depth. The brushwork in this piece is divine - an assemblage of ephemeral moments captured with a few simple yet striking strokes of the brush. Each stroke, to the trained eye, adds to the painting's narrative. The painter highlights both the physical and emotional landscapes of the sea and the quaint harbour.

Herbert Lewis was a Modernist painter born in Chicago in 1893. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts, as well as the Academie Julian in Paris. Before becoming an art instructor in Illinois in the 1920s and 1930s, he lived and painted in New York City and Arizona. By the late 1950s, he lived and painted full-time in Monterey, California where he exhibited with success at the Carmel Art Association.
