This charming portrait by Bror Kronstrand (1875-1950) depicts Brita Söderberg (nee Browall) wearing a light blue blouse with a white hat, ribbon and flower. She was 20 at the time.
Kronstrand was a fascinating and well-travelled artist. When he produced this portrait in 1934 he was living back in Sweden following many years working overseas. He was always in high demand and previously painted President Taft's wife, Helen Louise Taft.
He worked quickly and generally began with a charcoal drawing, which was then painted over in semi-transparent oils. As you can see here, the drawing is still partially visible as the artist intended.
Little is known about the sitter aside from some published works regarding genealogy.
