Exceptional, large, Swedish oil on canvas depicting a young girl wearing the traditional dress of Leksand, Dalarna Sweden. Soft and ethereal this painting is signed top right and dated 1909. The girls name ' Hoysen's Maria age 16' is detailed top left.

Maria, sits gently her hands crossed in her orange-aproned lap, her eyes closed. Her face with its soft, rose pink cheeks is defined by her white head scarf. The painting is soft and hazy and frankly breathtaking.
