Christian Tilemann-Petersen, Interior Scene With Woman

Christian Tilemann-Petersen, Interior Scene With Woman

A fine oil on canvas depicting a rustic interior adorned with paintings, tapestries and hunting trophies. A woman is leaving through a door to the rear.

The artist, Christian Tilemann-Petersen (1874-1926), was a master of light and this is a good example of how he creates a sense of intrigue by choosing a composition that emphasises light and shade.

He often painted interior scenes from buildings with historic significance, so this is possibly a castle or stately home.

The painting is signed in the lower left and housed within a later frame.
