19th-Century Danish School, Drawing Room With Seated Lady

19th-Century Danish School, Drawing Room With Seated Lady

An unusual late 19th-century interior scene depicting a dark drawing room with various artworks and a seated lady. This highly atmospheric piece is lit sparingly by a single window on the left and several candlesticks. Five decorative urns are caught by the moonlight and provide a central focal point.

It was clearly the artist’s intention that the figure of a lady only comes into focus as you scan the room. It’s an interesting technique that creates an intriguing atmosphere. 

The painting is signed and housed within a period frame.

Overall size: 23” x 28½” / 58cm x 72cm

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
