Danish Royalty - SOLD


This 16" x 16" original oil painting with gold leaf on wood panel depicts my daughter, indeed, a princess, dressed in pearls from her grandmother. It is inspired by Klimt, and she is of Jewish descent, but also of Danish descent, and the family story goes that her Great Grandpa Adolph was in fact the illegitimate son of the Danish King. He and his mother were relocated to Racine, WI, and he received a stipend from the royal family until his death.
