Lot Essay

The present lot bears an inscription of authentication by Eltan v. Born, Julius Holmberg and Georg Lagerstrom (on the reverse). This work is considered to be a preliminary study for the artist's painting 'Sorg' in the Finnish National Gallery, where the composition changed dramatically, but the setting of two figures in the woods was retained.
