1865 - 1931
FINNISH
THE CARD PLAYERS

We are grateful to Aivi Gallen-Kallela-Sirén for her assistance in cataloguing this work.

Provenance

Henri de Vallombreuse (probably a gift from the artist. Vallombreuse, 1856-1919, was a French ceramicist and a close friend of Gallen-Kallela whom he had met while both were studying at the Académie Julian in Paris in the 1880s)
Sale: Bukowskis, Stockholm, 28 October 1985, lot 12
Private Collection, Stockholm (purchased at the above sale)
Private Collection, England
Acquired by the present owners in 2003

Catalogue Note

Executed circa 1889. Although the sitters for the card players have not been identified, Aivi Gallen-Kallela-Sirén has suggested that one could be Henri de Vallombreuse, the first owner of the work.

Presented in the original frame, signed by the artist.
