Description

A fine mid-19th-century portrait of Antoinette Christiane Wulff (1823-1892) by acclaimed Danish painter, August Heinrich Schiøtt (1823-1895). Antoinette was the wife of Rear Admiral Jørgen Peter Frederik Wulff (1808-1881) who had distinguished career in the Danish navy.

Together with her husband, Antoinette raised two children, Ida Antoinette Wulff (1845-1924) and Marie Henriette Wulff (1847-1927). This specific portrait by August Schiøtt features on Antoinette's biographies online and is the original. It was quite a privilege to sit for the notable Danish portraitist as many of his subjects were Danish royalty.

Medium: Oil on paper laid on canvas

Artist’s auction highlight: £36,800 achieved in 2000 for ‘Badende drenge en sommerdag ved Ålsgårde i Nordsjælland’ (175cm x 235cm).
