This extraordinary collection of sketchbooks is the personal visual diary of Johannes Brochmann. This large collection of imagery was created during his travel at sea and is captured in this impressive collection of watercolour images. Most are bound in original sketchbooks.
The earliest sketchbooks document his time with the Norwegian America Line (NAL) on board the Lyngenfjord, Bergensfjord, and Stavangerfjord. The books continue on with the various vessels he served on. The last sketchbook in the collection consists of ships and their flags from all over the world. Sometimes the drawings are embellished by newspaper cutouts of pin-up girls, or small cartoons created by the artist.
