Artist's Description

The Statsraad Lehmkuhl is a three-masted barque rigged sail training vessel owned and operated by the Statsraad Lehmkuhl Foundation. It is based in Bergen, Norway and contracted out for various purposes, including serving as a school ship for the Royal Norwegian Navy (using RNoN’s prefix “KNM”, English: “HNoMS”). It was built in 1914 as a school training ship for the German merchant marine under the name ‘Grossherzog Friedrich August’. After the First World War the ship was taken as a prize by Great Britain and in 1921 the ship was bought by former cabinet minister Kristoffer Lehmkuhl. (Hence the name, which means ‘Cabinet Minister Lehmkuhl’) With the exception of the Second World War, the ship has belonged to Bergens Skoleskib until it was donated to the aforementioned foundation in 1978.
