Otto Franz Scholderer: 'Portrait of the Artist's Wife'

Explore the paintings

The artist made several portraits of Luise Steurwaldt, whom he married at Roehampton on 11 February 1872.

This work is closely related to a larger painting (Frankfurt, Städelsches Kunstinstitut) where the sitter wears the same costume but holds a European fan, rather than the Japanese one shown here. The Frankfurt painting, for which this may be a study, is dated 1873 and was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1875.
