Catalogue Note

On 5 September 1840, Eckersberg wrote in his diary: 'Started another picture of the beautiful female model'. The painting he is referring to, for which the present work is a study, was executed on copper and is now in the Fyns Kunstmuseum, Odense. The sitter is Florentine, a model popular with Eckersberg and other contemporary Golden Age painters. She began posing in Eckersberg's studio in August 1840, returning the following summer, and was the model for his celebrated Woman Standing in Front of a Mirror of 1841 (Hirschprung Collection, Copenhagen).
