Poul Friis Nybo, Interior Scene With Woman At The Piano

Poul Friis Nybo, Interior Scene With Woman At The Piano

This gentle Danish interior scene sensitively depicts a young lady playing the piano by soft candlelight. She’s focused and lost to the music - perhaps it’s a nightly serenade.

Poul Friis Nybo (1869-1929) cherished these moments and often produced introspective scenes featuring women writing, reading or undertaking crafts.

The painting is signed and housed within a gilt frame.

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.
