Otto Nielsen, Workshop

Otto Nielsen, Workshop

A charming early 20th-century oil on canvas depicting a man sitting in a workshop surrounded by tools. The artist, Otto Nielsen (1877-1959), has captured a quiet moment of focus with expression and a deft touch. 

Nielsen was predominantly known for his landscapes but he also produced genre scenes from everyday life.

The painting is signed in the lower right and housed within a frame that’s probably its original.

Overall size: 38” x 31” / 97cm x 79cm

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.
