Another Danish artist for you this week. This is Carl Vilhelm Holsøe (1863-1935) 'Interior with a mother reading aloud to her daughter'. Although you can't see the little girl's face, you can tell from the way she's looking so trustingly at her mother that she is completely absorbed by the story.
Here's something I found about the artist:
Brothers-in-law Peter Vilhelm ILSTED and Vilhelm HAMMERSHØI along with brothers Carl Vilhelm HOLSOE and Neil HOLSOE were leading artists in early 20th century Denmark. Peter, Vilhelm, Carl and possibly Neil were members of ‘The Free Exhibition’, a progressive art society created around 1890. They are famous for painting images of "Sunshine and Silent Rooms" in subtle colors. All of their works reflect the orderliness of a tranquil life.
