Carl von Neff

Carl von Neff (1804-1877) was born in Estonia and had a successful career as a painter in Russia, becoming a court painter to Nicholas I. His portraits, especially of women, can be very charming, painted in a Biedermeier style with a pleasing touch of naivety.

A painting of unusual painterly quality for this artist, one might easily mistake it for a work from the Danish golden age.
