Queen Lovisa
1828-1871

The future Queen Lovisa is depicted on a terrace with roses and ivy. She wears a white dress with delicate lace.

The portrait is regarded as being highly flattering, and as a future queen she had all the qualities the royal court was looking for. She was a Protestant and politically suitable, and came from a wealthy family.

The painting was produced by an unknown copyist, based on an original by the Belgian painter Nicaise de Keyser.
