This is a lithograph print of an oil painting by J.K. Dinesen, produced for the Seattle World's Fair. Otherwise known as the Century 21 Exposition, the world's fair ran from April 21 - October, 21 of 1962 where it featured the construction of the iconic Space Needle, Alweg monorail, several sports stadiums and performing arts buildings.
This beautiful seascape image is like poetry of motion, portraying the frothy foam of the sea, which is in sharp contrast to the the rough jagged coastline. The vibrant golden colors of the Sunset, reflected on the water, allow the viewer to witness the passing of another day. Many of Dinesen's works were of the Pacific Coast.

Born in Denmark, in 1915, J. K. Dinesen loved to draw the images of the Sea. Eventually moving to Canada, he continued his work as an artist with larger paintings. By 1954, his complete mastery had been recognized, and he exhibited a large collection of oils at the Pacific National Exhibition. Best known for his surreal-like landscape oil paintings, his work was also on exhibition at the 1962 World's Fair, Seattle, Washington.
