Lilli Lundsteen, Portrait Of A Gentleman With A Homburg

A characterful 20th-century portrait of a dapper gentleman wearing a black homburg hat by Danish artist, Lilli Lundsteen (1871-1949).

She’s captured the gentleman’s character superbly well and it feels like she knew him personally. We particularly love his carefully coiffured grey beard and thick bushy eyebrows.

Elisabeth (Lilli) Charlotte Lundsteen was primarily a painter of portraits and still lifes. She exhibited at the Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen and one of her works, ‘Barnebillede’, is held in the collection at the Ribe Kunstmuesum.

The painting is monogrammed in the lower left and housed within a traditional Danish gilded frame with foliate corners.
