This charming early-20th-century oil painting by Danish artist Knud Sinding (1898-1947) depicts a kitchen interior with mother and child.

A gentle breeze passes through the kitchen window. The room partially illuminated by a crisp glow. Looking down, she washes dishes, occasionally glancing above the voile towards a resplendent garden in bloom. Her child scuttles and chatters within a sturdy wooden walker.

Sinding had two passions - Italy and his family. Here, in around 1912, he’s probably depicting his wife, Mia, and child - possibly Eva. Later in life, his walls would be adorned with paintings of his children.

Monogrammed in the lower right and held within a period 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.
