Lilli Lundsteen, Portrait Of A Girl In A White Dress

An enigmatic portrait of a seated girl by Danish painter, Elisabeth (Lilli) Charlotte Lundsteen (1871-1949). How do you read her expression? Is she related to the artist?

Lundsteen was primarily a painter of portraits and still lifes. She trained under the gifted portraitist, Frans Schwartz (1850-1917) and exhibited for many years at the Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition.

One of her works, ‘Barnebillede’, is held in the collection at the Ribe Kunstmuesum. She was also a member of the Danish Women’s Artists Association.

The painting is signed/dated in the lower left.
