(1850 - 1921)
Antonio Nicolo Gasparo Jacobsen was active/lived in New York, New Jersey / Denmark. Antonio Jacobsen is known for ship portrait and other marine painting.
Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, Antonio Jacobsen became one of America's
best known and most prolific painters of marine subjects. From
1880, he lived in Hoboken, New Jersey, having studied at the Royal
Academy in Copenhagen.
He emigrated to New York in 1871 to
avoid serving in the Franco-Prussian War, and got a job decorating
safes. At that time, he began painting portraits of the vessels
of the Old Dominion Steamship Line, creating about 6000 ship portraits
in the New York Harbor between 1876 and 1919.
Later in his
life, his daughter Helen painted the skies and water of his pictures,
and his son Carl even painted some of the ships credited to Jacobsen.
