Interior With Spinning Wheel

This early 20th-century oil painting by Danish artist C Sorensen depicts a rustic interior with table, spinning wheel, chair, clock, and chest.

Little is known about C Sørensen, which is unusual given their evident skill. They worked predominantly during the 1930s and produced numerous interior scenes and occasional still lifes. They had a particular penchant for capturing depth via a view through a window, as we see here. It’s an idyllic vision of rural life, rendered in a charming fashion.

Its exacting traditional style is somewhat based upon the luminaries of the Danish Golden Age, particularly Frederik Vermehren (1823-1910). It’s a wishful image of a bygone, pre-industrialised, age.

Signed in the lower right and held within a gilt frame, which is probably original.

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.
