Portrait of P. Ryder, Son of the Artist’s Cousin
Christen Købke

The son of Købke’s cousin, a master baker, is seen here in his work clothes, smoking a cigarillo. The basket of pretzels behind him is the outcome of a good day’s work.

Completed the year of the Danish artist’s death, the portrait shows him working on a larger scale than usual and with a restricted palette.
