This antique Scandinavian painting shows a popular subject matter of a portrait in an attractive interior. The young woman is caught in a moment reading a card with quiet colors and light coming from above. Her black dress against the white doors, is classic but with the slight character of an impressionist painter. Bjulf was a Danish artist best known for his paintings of city scenes from Copenhagen.
