“Møde i Ørstedparken”. A rendez-vous in Ørstedsparken, Copenhagen. Signed and dated H. A. Brendekilde 84. Oil on canvas. 54×72 cm.
Literature: Gertrud Hvidberg-Hansen, “Brendekildes billedverden - stemning og skæbne”, 2001, reproduced p. 48 and mentioned p. 44. Here she comments on Brendekilde's interest in the more fashionable urban culture as opposed to rural life. Elegant ladies in the latest fashion move in the city's recreational areas, in parks and in the woods in a relaxed atmosphere, where the almost flat silhouettes stand sharply in the foreground, against the underlying diffuse background as in the present painting.
Provenance: Bruun Rasmussen auction 521, 1989 no. 42, reproduced p. 21.
