Johan Gudmann Rohde

(1856 Randers - 1935 Hellerup)

Young Girl Sewing. Lithograph on wove paper after Vilhelm Hammershøi. 34.2 x 32,7 cm. 1893.

The present lithograph by Johan Gudmann Rohde is a brilliant reproduction of Vilhelm Hammershøi’s oil painting of the same name (Ordrupgaard, Copenhagen) made six years earlier. It shows the artist’s sister, Anna Hammershøi, absorbed in her sewing. In its reduction to the bare essentials and the simplification of the form this intimate portrait has the quality of a devotional picture. The scene with its subtly gradated black and grey tones is remarkable for its straightforwardness and meditative atmosphere. A superb, harmonious impression with even respectively narrow margins at the top.
