Danish painter Ole Ahlberg is known by most people for his paintings in which he places Hergé's famous comic book characters Tintin, Captain Haddock and others in a new artistic context. In these symbolic paintings, lithos and giclee prints Ole Ahlberg juxtaposes objects and people from "the real world" with comic book characters. As is the case with his painting and reproduction Into the Sunset. We see Tintin and his dog Snowy on a boat. The composition mirrors that of Tintin comic book album The Derk Isle, but the Isle has been removed from the painting and the sea and sky are painted in a convincing, lifelike manner. Only the comic book character Tintins and Snowy remain painted with a bold outline that makes him appear flat on the canvas.

All editions are controlled, numbered and signed by Ole Ahlberg. The limited editions are printed on 310 gsm. Hahnemuhle German Etching paper and have a lifetime quality guarantee.
Ole Ahlberg (1949) is a Danish painter with a fast growing international audience. Ole Ahlberg is known by most people for his artworks in which he places Hergé's famous comic book characters Tintin, Captain Haddock and others in a new artistic, often erotic context. These artworks by Ole Ahlberg starring Tintin are loved by many and sell for high prices at auction.
Ole Ahlberg's early paintings were formed by the maxim "a picture in a picture in a picture", like a set of Chinese boxes. Now he uses only one central picture surface and one central scene in which the action takes place. He has also replaced his earlier Vanitas symbols like peeled lemons, hourglasses and skulls with more contemporary themes.
You can say that Ole Ahlberg has abandoned his subtle illusionism in favor of a more "normal" painting style but without sacrificing the mystery and ambiguity in his art.
