An exquisite portrait of a seated lady by Danish artist, Julius Paulsen (1860-1940). She sits across the chair, looking down with her right hand supporting her head. The brushwork is distinctive and full of intelligent expression. Note the lips - a mere daub of red, while the skin is fleshy and almost Rubenesque.
The portrait is signed/dated in the upper right and housed within a gilt frame.
