Florence Abrahamson, Interior Scene With Woman

BRAVE FINE ART
An enigmatic interior scene by Swedish-Danish artist, Florence Olga Abrahamson (1877-1965). It’s a piece that gives you a little more every time you view it.

What’s the story here? Why is she sitting with her back turned to the window? Are the flowers deliberately shown as drawn towards the light? Could this be a symbolic reference for a woman trapped within her society?

Abrahamson was of Jewish descent and spent her early years in Holland Park, London. Her sister, Charlotte, was also a talented artist, while her other sister, Bertha, was a respected philanthropist.

Florence’s art consisted of interiors, landscapes and portraits and she participated in several exhibitions including at The Society of Women Artists. Some of her work is held at the Gothenburg Art Museum.

In 1943, she had to flee to Sweden when German soldiers marched into Denmark.

The painting is signed/dated in the lower right.
