Søren Christian Bjulf, Interior Scene With Woman At Writing Desk

A quiet 20th-century interior scene by Danish artist, Søren Christian Bjulf (1890-1958). Here, we see a seated woman in a green dress reading by lamplight. Three fine paintings hang above her including a large portrait of a gentleman.

Bjulf was an interesting artist that trained in Dusseldorf and Paris. His work covered an array of subjects including landscapes, interiors and portraits.

The painting is signed in the lower right 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.
