A dark and unusual painting of a dalmatian staring into a fire by Danish artist, Thorvald Larsen (1881-1947). The room is so dimly lit that you can barely see the dog as it warms its nose. Two inches closer and it’ll be in for a fright.
Larsen is known predominantly for his landscapes and trained under August Jarndorff (1845-1906). He lived a humble life as a farmer with a small plot of land and also worked as a vase painter.
The painting is signed and dated.
