To Ellen

This blog is made to the honor of my grandmother Ellen Elisabeth Thomsen who was a modern woman .
She was born in Randers in Denmark 1895 and died in Copenhagen 1976.
She had long salmon red hair down to her hips. It was braided and put up with lots of hairpins to make it look short.

Sir. Alma Tadema
This is not Algernon Swinburne but a picture of Ignazcy Jan Paderewski
I have shown it in an earlier post as well.

Just found a photo of Paderewski 
 today the 16th of Jan 2013 and surprice surpice who would have known?
I am quit sure that Alma Tadema used it,
 when he painted that portrait! It's too similar to be a coincidence!!!

One might ask if this is a coincident or Carl Larsson had seen Jacek Malsczewskies portrait?
I have seen other rather similar compositions between  their art.
And it seems to me that Carl Larsson was aware of this polish colleges work.
