An oil on canvas painted after the noted Danish artist Jenns Juel (1745-1802) . The original portait painting is in the State Museum of Art in Copenhagen .
Jens Juel painted this portrait of a lady with pearl earrings in 1766 and it is remarkable . The noble visage of a lady with fair skin and with fine lacework collar and lace hat peers out at you from the canvas.
She is quite a nordic beauty and knowingly glances with pride whilst wearing a very large pearl earring, a rarity in its age in Europe. She would grace any home.
