Danish painter 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 context. In these symbolic paintings, lithos and giclee prints he juxtaposes objects and people from "the real world" with comic book characters. He also does this in Sight Seeing. The clouds and landscape are painted in a convincing, likelike manner while the comic book character Tintin is painted with a bold outline that makes him appear flat on the canvas.

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.
