Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Acquired directly from the artist’s family.

    A leading exponent of the School of Munich, Jakobides spent many years in the Bavarian capital where he enjoyed a very successful career. Best known for his genre scenes depicting the playful and mischievous antics of childhood, but also tender moments between children and their mothers or grandparents, Jakobides also devoted his talents to portraiture and still lives. When he returned to Athens in 1900 to assume the direction of the National Art Gallery and that of the School of Fine Arts, Jakobides turned almost exclusively to portraiture (and especially of the elite of Athenian society) and still lives. The present painting, from the last years of his life, reveals the full extent of his expressive powers. Without idealising, he has captured the gentle character of the thoughtful woman.
