This Scandinavian painting shows a living room interior with a young woman reading by a large sunny window overlooking the Church of Our Lady. This important Church ( Vor Frue Kirke) is the oldest church in Scandinavia dating back to 1060 in Aarhus, Denmark. Signed (lower left): Aage Lund.
Aage Lund is primarily known for its fishing and oyster posters for Fish house, Gammel Strand, Copenhagen. He served as the artistic director to the large lithographic Company A / S Kruchow & Waldorff. His many paintings, watercolors, etchings and lithographs were mainly given to his family, friends and a few business associates so they are not as well known. His work is reminiscent of the painting style of Michael Ancher (Danish, 1849-1927).
