A gentlewoman with croquet mallet in hand is seen enjoying a lovely Danish summer day in this original oil on canvas painting. Her long white dress, hat and hair style are indicative of the late Victorian period. While the painting is a bit dark, the mood of the scene is serene, portraying simpler times of summer days gone by. The canvas is mounted in a black and gold painted frame and initialed CC in the lower right for Danish artist Christian Claussen (1862-1911). There are some scattered nicks and black paint losses to the frame.
