In his collection Danish Marine Painting, art collector Frank Nicolajsen has about 30 of the best known Danish marine painters of the 19th century – including C.W. Eckersberg, Anton Melbye, C.F. Sørensen, Emanuel Larsen, Carl Dahl, Carl Bille, Carl Neumann and Carl Locher.

For the first time this big collection has been made accessible to the public – and to Frank Nicolajsen himself! – in the old Lemvig custom house, with the harbour, the inlet and the ships right outside the windows.
For the first time in the history of art it is now possible to view such a large collection of marine paintings, and of such high quality at that!
