Oil on canvas by Albert Roelofs (1877 – 1920), son of the famous landscape painter Willem Roelofs. He initially painted landscapes, but gradually developed a preference for genre paintings and portraits. His most faithful model was his wife, Tjieke, who inspired him to make countless figure paintings that speak of intimate and domestic happiness. His work was especially popular with the Belgian bourgeoisie.
The oil depicts a family scene with a lady and a gentleman sitting on a sofa, next to a chest of drawers.
Signed: Albert Roelofs.
