Hanna Pauli, Friends, 1900-07
Oil on canvas
The setting is the artists Hanna and Georg Pauli's apartment in Stockholm. The group includes prominent cultural figures of the time, such as the author Ellen Key, the artist Richard Bergh and the art collector Klas Fåhreus. The group has gathered around Key, who is reading aloud in the lamplight. Key was an active author and debater and was deeply engaged in both social and aesthetic issues. Her appearance in this picture sets her apart from the rest – illuminated by the lamp, she takes on an almost spiritual character.
