A copy after Juel's 1791 original now in the Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen.1
Juel was a leading Danish painter best known for his landscapes and portraits. He painted compositionally balanced works in a harmonious palette, continuing a classical painterly tradition. He travelled to Hamburg, Dresden, Paris and Rome. Juel was among the first Danish artists to paint pure landscapes based on studies from nature; his landscapes are a particularly fine example of early Danish Romanticism. It is, however, his small-format portraits such as the present composition in which he was an evident master.
