Oil on canvas.
Still in the original frame.
In this painting we can see a young lady wearing a white blouse and blue ribbons. She’s gazing out of the window while her tea is cooling down. On her left hand she is wearing a dainty ring, meaning that maybe she’s engaged or married. She is accompanied by a little bird on her windowsill, curiously peeking inside the room.
Charles Verwee was a Belgian painter known for his interior scenes, genre scenes and glamorous society portraits. His genre scenes often show romantic intrigues and young society ladies. He was particularly skilled at capturing the spontaneity of the intimate moments of his characters. He is regarded as representing the modern trend in the Classical school together with the Belgian painter Charles Hermans.
Verwee participated in many Salons, including in Brussels in 1854, in Antwerp in 1861, in Ghent in 1871 and Amsterdam in 1877.
