Old House

It occurred to me to share some of the paintings that have been part of my life since my childhood. The first is interesting because I have a photo of the house in the painting. Also, the signature, HW doesn’t reveal much about the artist. However, this painting could have been part of my great-grandmother’s belongings. The photo suggests that she might have found and bought the painting on Bornholm. The other possibility is that an artist friend painted it for her. To be honest, there is a third option. My great-grandmother could have painted it, but nobody knows for sure. Her initials were the same as those on the painting.

      My pleasure entirely, Anna! I love the painting too and am happy to have found that photo. It shows how accurately the painter worked.

    That’s beautiful! Do you have any idea where it was painted? The building looks German or English, but I’m sure it could be other places in Europe.

      As far as I know, it was painted on Bornholm — a small island — and the easternmost part of Denmark.
