19th-Century Danish School Portrait Of An Older Lady With Knitting

19th-Century Danish School Portrait Of An Older Lady With Knitting

A characterful mid-19th-century oil on canvas depicting a seated older lady with knitting needles and wool. She’s wearing a black dress with a lace collar along with a beautiful white bonnet.

We love the movement in this piece, she’s leaning forward as if she’s about to recall an interesting story.

The portrait is unsigned but it's clearly by a well-trained hand. It's housed with a period giltwood frame.
