Leander Engström met Isaac Grünewald while studying art in Stockholm. Grünewald convinced Engström to travel to Paris and study for the great Henri Matisse in 1908. From Matisse Engström learned to paint the female body and to use colors in an expressionist way. This portrait depicts the Danish countess Bille-Brahe who is depicted with a fresh palette and dressed in a fashionable way with a dreamy facial expression.
The artwork is for sale at Modern Art + Design on 16 June and is on view 11–15 June at Berzelii Park 1 in Stockholm, Sweden.
