Elin Danielson-Gambogi:
In the New Home


Oil on canvas.

83,0 cm x 60,0 cm.

Elin Danielson-Gambogi (1861–1919) intrepidly depicted the lives of women in her day. One of her favourite models was her sister Rosa Emilia, aka Tytty, who also sat for this painting that was completed in 1893. Danielson-Gambogi was a masterful depicter of light and here, too, she has skilfully rendered the soft glow of the artificial light source.
