Holger Labra was marine painter. By far the largest part of his production is

fresh, naturalistic depictions of life in the port of Copenhagen or by

Nordsjællands coast. In recurrent periods are the motives taken from

West Coast (Agger, Thyborøn). A smaller part of the production's depictions

from southern Italy.
