19th-Century Danish School, Portrait Of A Woman In A White Dress

19th-Century Danish School, Portrait Of A Woman In A White Dress

A fine turn of the century Danish school portrait of a young lady in a white dress and red wrap. Imagine commissioning a portrait of your daughter and receiving a work of this calibre. One that references the old masters in its use of light/shade yet also captures the young lady’s character - particularly in the eyes.

The style of this piece is a joy to behold as it sits somewhere between the old and new. It has an intriguing atmosphere and a timeless quality. And, although unsigned, it’s clearly painted by an Academy-trained artist.

We have a beautiful period frame for the portrait, which can be provided if required.

Medium: Oil on canvas
Overall size: 18” x 24” / 45cm x 61cm
Year of creation: c. 1900

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.
