A vibrant and light-filled work by this well-listed Danish Modernist and disciple of Morisot and Vuillard. Nielsen first studied at the Freiberg Technical School and, after the war, at the Copenhagen's Art Academy. He subsequently studied throughout Europe and, later, as his palette continued to lighten, in both Egypt and Greece. Nielsen exhibited widely and with success and was the recipient of numerous medals, prizes and juried awards.
