Henrik Joesten Bleeker, Portrait Of A Woman Reminiscing

This poignant early 20th-century portrait of a woman captures a quiet moment of reflection with skill and sensitivity. Her left-hand holds a photograph, perhaps a loved one, her right clutches a scarf. The expression is enigmatic - lost in thought, recalling a fond memory.

The artist, Henrik Joesten Bleeker (1869-1930), has created a portrayal, which is more personal than many of his other works. Maybe he knew the sitter. 

The painting is signed in the lower right and housed within a period frame.
