Poul Friss Nybo, Interior Scene With Girl At Writing Desk

This charming early 20th-century interior scene by Danish artist Poul Friss Nybo (1869-1929) depicts a young lady at a writing desk. It’s quietly introspective and you can almost hear the pen scratching away.

Nybo was particularly skilled at interior scenes and we believe he often painted his own home. Candid moments captured with calm precision.

Signed in the lower left and framed.
