Poul Friis Nybo, Interior Scene With Woman At The Piano

Poul Friis Nybo, Interior Scene With Woman At The Piano

This gentle interior scene by Poul Friis Nybo (1869-1929) sensitively depicts a young lady playing the piano by candlelight. Several artworks, including portraits, hang on the wall behind. Perhaps it’s a nightly recital to ancestors that have passed.

Nybo cherished these quiet moments and often produced introspective scenes featuring women writing, reading or undertaking crafts.

The painting is signed and housed within a period 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.
