A mid-20th-century portrait of a teacher by Czech-Swedish artist, Pavel Fleischmann (1898-1978). She’s dressed in a cardigan, red tie and yellow shirt. Her arms are resting on her legs. The portrait is titled “Lärarinnan Larsson”, which translates as Teacher Larsson. Perhaps she taught the artist’s children?
Fleischmann’s brushwork is bold, colourful and broad. He’s built the oils up in places to give the pieces a little texture.
The portrait is signed in the upper right and housed within a wooden frame. It’s also inscribed on the reverse.
