Lady Reading by Lamplight by Carl Vilhelm Holsøe

Holsøe’s painting stresses the material qualities and richness of the domestic surroundings. The interior of the house is richly adorned, particularly with paintings, and rendered with painterly brushstrokes, which emphasize the plasticity and reflective qualities of the objects depicted.
