R. Christiansen, Portrait Of Dorthea Christine Kemp

Regular price £349.00

DESCRIPTION

An early 20th-century portrait of Dorthea Christine Kemp, née Schmidt (1804-1877) wearing a beautiful dark dress with gold jewellery and a lace shawl.

The portrait was created by R. Christiansen in 1925 after the original by Danish artist, Morten Thrane Brünnich (1805-1861).

Dorthea was born in Aalborg, Denmark, to Skoemager and Cathrine. In 1830 she married Neils Daniel Kemp (1797-1852) and the couple went on to have at least eight children. One of her sons, Victor, served in the Danish army as a second lieutenant.

Inscribed with the artist’s name on the reverse. 

Note - we refer to this lady as 'Dorthea' rather than 'Dorothea' as the inscription on the reverse gives her name as 'Dorthea'. Genealogy sources include both names, so it could actually be either.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
