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.
