Artist of July - Elin Danielson-Gambogi

After breakfast 1900



Elin Danielson-Gambogi 1861 - 1919 was a Finnish Swedish speaking painter, a life long friend of Helene Schjerfbeck. She studied in Helsinki and in Paris at Académie Colarossi and with Auguste Rodin.  
She dominated classic techniques, landscape painting, perspective and she worked a short time at Arabia porcelaine factory as a decorator. She arose much discussion because of her female portraits. She painted women in their daily life, in very light clothes, in their underwear and even smoking. That was outrageous at that time!

She painted also landscapes with light colors and Mediterranean sceneries.

Italian boats 1900
She got married to an Italian painter Rafaello Gambogi, who was 13 years younger than her. They lived in a small village of Torre del Lago, worked and had exhibitions together.



She died of pneumonia and is buried with her husband in Livorno, Italy.

I have to thank Barbara and her Paint monthly. I had almost forgotten this great painter but found her gorgeous paintings again. Her art fits so well in July!

I am sorry that I did not find online sharper photos, but you'll get the idea of her style. More information on the artist at Wikipedia and at this photo site with fabulous photos of good quality!

Hope you enjoy!

  6. Oh, I love that first picture. It reminds me of my mom because she used to smoke. She quit many years later. What a talented artist this is.
