Albert Julius Olsson

Albert Julius Olsson (1864—1942) was born in London, the son of a Swedish father and English mother, the 'artist was within him' and he was wholly self-taught. A daring yachtsman, some of his marine scenes look back at the coastline from onboard ship. His work was in the late impressionist style of Henry Moore.
From the examples of his paintings I can find on Google image search it seems Olsson was particularly fond of painting the sea in moonlight.

Really expansive range of moods. The moonlight paintings are breath taking.

Hi Katherine. I love the moonlight pieces too. I'd love to see some of his paintings in the flesh. Most of the images on the net are not that great in quality.
