Thorvald Larsen, Interior Scene With Dalmatian

Thorvald Larsen, Interior Scene With Dalmatian

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.

Overall size: 14” x 16” / 36cm x 41cm
Year of creation: c. 1915

Condition: Overall very good. Some scuffs along the edges due to its previous frame. Please note that this is a dark painting and will need good light to get the most from it.

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.
