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.
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).
