A new exhibition of paintings by expert naval artist Susanne Fournais Grube is set to go on display at London's Osborne Studio Gallery this autumn. Wife of Danish ambassador Claus Grube, Fournais Grube was elected as an official Belgian marine painter in 2004, allowing her to sign her works with the coveted red anchor.
Fournais Grube is inspired by her travels around the world and, being largely self-taught, the appeal of her works lies in their charming, almost quaint, aesthetic. From military vessels to cruise ships suitable for royals at sea, Fournais Grube's passion for her subject is evident. Click through to see our pick of the best pieces.
Marine Paintings by Susanne Fournais Grube is at the Osborne Studio Gallery, London, from 7-13 October 2015.
