Interior With Armchair & Window

This early 20th-century oil painting by Danish artist Robert Panitzsch (1879-1949) depicts an interior with an armchair, window, and various furnishings.

Panitzsch has become widely admired for his beautiful interior scenes, often depicting the various corners of his own home in Copenhagen. Sunlight cascades across the sheen of polished furniture. Pristine curtains flutter, caught by a gentle breeze. Ceramic ornaments adorn antique sideboards. Perhaps a reclusive character, he tended to paint within his own four walls rather than venture out into nature.

This piece from 1928 is a fine example of his talent. Note the light as it catches the gilt-framed artworks, the pot plant on the window sill - viewed through the net, and the reflection in the mirror on the left. Note too the faint outline of a figure in the chair, painted out for reasons unknown.

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.
